Sometimes when you work hard but doesn’t get the required output, it hurts, it really hurts. Ace India spinner Harbhajan Singh has raised a controversial question regarding the selection of Indian cricket team for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. According to the Harbhajan Singh, Dhoni gets unfair benefit or privilege when it comes to selection for team India.
In an interview to NDTV SPORTS, Harbhajan said: “Yes there is no doubt that Dhoni brings a lot to the table apart from his batting, whether he is in form or not. Obviously, we have seen that he is not hitting the ball as well as we have seen. But when it comes to me. I do feel that we are not given that sort of privilege.”
The bowler added: “So this privilege is for some players, and for some, it is not and I’m one of those for whom this privilege is not there. I don’t know why that is the case. That question of ‘why’, needs to be asked to the selectors.”
“I don’t want to sing my own praises but the amount of cricket others have played even I understand the game as much and what they bring to the table we also bring to the table. We too wish to play for the country as much.”
Harbhajan also complained that there was no communication between him and the selectors, he added: “I don’t know my weakness because nobody has spoken to me. None of the selectors, no one actually. But I’ve always felt that when I do I get somewhere so I’m working hard and I’m sure I’ll get somewhere.”
Literally, Harbhajan Singh was very upset with the fact that neither his nor Gautam Gambhir name was discussed at the selection committee meeting for the Champions Trophy.
