T20 World Cup 2024 / 'Winning the World Cup is bigger than winning the IPL', Harbhajan Singh supported Hardik in this way

T20 World Cup 2024: The last two months have been difficult for Indian team's star all-rounder Hardik Pandya. Under his captaincy, Mumbai Indians team could not perform well in IPL 2024. The team was at the last position in the points table. He himself failed to make an impact with ball and bat. Things became more difficult for him when the fans inside the stadium started booing him. Now former Indian team player Harbhajan Singh has given a big statement. 

Supported Hardik Pandya

Harbhajan Singh hopes that he will be a different Hardik Pandya when he dons the Indian team jersey because we know he can score runs and take wickets. I want Hardik to do well because he has been through a lot and I wish him all the best for a very good tournament for India. If this tournament goes well for Hardik, then obviously India will have a great chance to move ahead.

'Winning the World Cup is bigger than winning the IPL'

Harbhajan Singh said that yes, his form is a matter of some concern. There were a lot of things going on around him. His move from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians was a big change. He also had to face opposition from fans. There was a lot going on. Hardik was not a free man in the last two months. Winning the World Cup is a bigger achievement than winning the IPL trophy. So I would urge the management to bring everyone together and ensure their unity so that they can play as a team.

Kohli's batting was praised 

Harbhajan is deeply impressed by the change in the way former Indian captain and experienced batsman Virat Kohli bats in the T20 format. He said that Virat has shown a lot of improvement from last year to this year and people talk about his strike rate. Last year it was around 130 and this time it is around 160. This is a big change but Virat and Rohit will have to score runs quickly in the powerplay. Along with this, the conditions of America and West Indies will also have to be respected.
