I am fit and ready for action: Bhajji
Thursday 08 September 2011

India’s tour to England has been a sort of anomaly with regards to the team’s mounting injury concerns. But as the disappointing series edges near completion there seems to be a glimmer for home for the beleaguered Indian side.

Ace off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has announced that he is fit and ready for all the cricket ahead after suffering an abdomen injury in England.

"I am 100 per cent fit and raring to go for all the cricket ahead. These are valuable life lessons, and I take these things in my stride. I don't get upset by what people say," Harbhajan told MiD DAY.

"I have worked really hard at the National Cricket Academy. I am looking forward to the Champions League T20, and also the coming home series (against England and West Indies)," he added.

The injury was a bitter blow not only for Harbhajan but for team India as well. But the fiery off-spinner is confident that his return from injury will be like a rebirth of sorts for him.

"Obviously, the injury came at the wrong time. But, I don't think about the timing -- it's always bad -- whether it was in a home series or away series. An injury is an injury. There was lot of sadness to come back home soon. But I have never felt this good about my bowling. This is going to be a rebirth of sorts for me. I am going to get my rhythm back.” he revealed.
