Legends League Cricket: Harbhajan Singh to lead Manipal Tigers
Harbhajan Singh who has sclaped 417 Test wickets has shown the world the power of finger spin in an era where Wrist spinners were given more importance. He has represented India in 28 T20 Internationals along with 103 test matches and 236 ODIs.
“Playing alongside all great players over the years, I have picked the nuances of the game which has made me a better cricketer. As a Cricketer, I did not get an opportunity to Captain the team but this will be something I am really looking forward to. I love leading from the front and I hope I can do justice to the responsibility and faith shown on me.” said Harbhajan Singh, Skipper, Manipal Tigers.
Irfan Pathan to handle the helm of affairs at Bhilwara Kings
