Former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh recently opened up about some interesting stories from the “ICC 2011 CWC” during a conversation with Paddy Upton on his podcast ‘Lessons from the World’s Best’. During their conversation, they talked about an interesting story that happened between India vs Pakistan during the World Cup semi-final match.
The India vs Pakistan match is always a high-intensity match and is followed more when the two teams cash in on during the Cricket World Cup.
Speaking about a timeline of India’s semi-final encounter, Harbhajan Singh revealed, “There was a time when I was playing an India vs Pakistan World Cup match in Mohali. I really shivered when Dhoni asked me to bowl in the second spell. He was batting. It was really good at that time. He asked me to bowl after the drinks break. I didn’t want to show pressure on people.”
During a conversation with Paddy Upton, Harbhajan further said that it is very important to remain calm in pressure situations. “You have to keep calm and think that you have done this before and for all these years, you have worked hard for this moment. Put those feelings aside, focus, take a deep breath and do what you know you do best. I got the wicket on the very first ball and that helped me get my confidence back.
