Harbhajan Singh made a bold statement on April 4 while commenting on the game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Lucknow Super Giants.

The legendary off-spinner revealed that if anyone can beat Virat Kohli in fitness it’s Rahul Tripathi. Rahul Tripathi, who plays alongside SRH, was previously with Kolkata Knight Riders and Harbhajan represented the same franchise in 2021. This statement could be due to Harbhajan Singh’s personal experience with Tripathi.

In Tripathi’s first IPL, he represented the Rising Pune Supergiant Team (now defunct) in 2017. In 2018 and 2019 he played for the Rajasthan Royals and then in 2020 and 2021 he represented KKR. In the last mega auction, Tripathi was signed by the Hyderabad franchise for a sum of Rs. 8.50 million.

Ravindra Jadeja has given MS Dhoni a headache to take care of the field setting: Harbhajan Singh

After losing the first three games for the first time, CSK didn’t start the IPL very well and more wins will be a must for them. Ravindra Jadeja’s stint as captain is drawing criticism as it hasn’t been great so far as he’s new to the leadership role.

“I feel MS Dhoni is still captain of the team. When I look at Jadeja, he positions himself outside the ring. You can’t control too many things that way, but he gave MS Dhoni a headache to take care of the field and everything,” Harbhajan Singh said of Star Sports.

“He loses some of his own weight and puts it on Dhoni’s shoulders who tend the pitch,” added the 41-year-old.

The ex-CSK player thought it would be a good move for CSK to invest in Jadeja when Dhoni hits from behind the stumps. He also believes that Jadeja will gradually develop as a skipper.

“But I think overall Jadeja is a very confident guy when it comes to batting and bowling and his skills are amazing. Getting the best out of the team when it’s not working is rare and he needs to get up and talk about a few things.”
