Harbhajan Singh played for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first 10 seasons of Indian Premier League (IPL). Although MI did not retain him for the upcoming season, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the two-time champions, drafted him. The Turbanator will now be playing under the captaincy of MS Dhoni again.

Speaking to the CSK media team, Harbhajan explained why Dhoni is a great captain. “He [Dhoni] understands the game really well, is street-smart and thinks ahead of the game and I feel that’s very important for a captain, especially in T20. That’s what makes him a great skipper.

“It’s always a great feeling to play along with MS Dhoni. I’m looking forward to working with him again towards a common goal – this time to win the trophy for the Chennai Super Kings,” Harbhajan said.

Harbhajan said that it is a great experience to play for two strong teams and that a decade with MI was memorable. “CSK versus Mumbai Indians – two top teams – was always a pressure game. No matter how bad the situation, both would continue to fight till the end and create chances. That’s how champion teams play, with a lot of passion and pride,” he concluded.
