After Kohli, Bhajji endorses turners for England series
Greater Noida: Senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh today joined teammate Virat Kohli in endorsing the idea of preparing turning wickets for the upcoming Test series against England, saying there is nothing wrong in exploiting the home advantage.
Harbhajan, who is eyeing a comeback into the Indian Test squad in the upcoming four-Test series, said a complete whitewash would be an ideal revenge for the Indians, who suffered a 0-4 humiliation against England in the away series last year.
"A 4-0 scoreline (in India`s favour) would be a good score. We are playing at home, so naturally we will use our experience and conditions. There is no harm in it," Harbhajan said on the sidelines of the second Indian Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit here.
Kohli had also recently supported the idea of preparing turning tracks for the England series.
Harbhajan, however, feels that Keven Pietersen`s return to the team is a big bonus for England going into the series starting November 9.
"KP`s coming back into the team is good for England. His presence will make England stronger," said the feisty bowler, who was here with his long-time girlfriend actress Geeta Basra as Ferrari guests.
Talking about F1, Harbhajan said he is a big Ferrari and Fernando Alonso fan.
"I have always been a big Ferrari supporter. Alonso is my favourite driver. I have been to Ferrari`s garage, met staffs and drivers last year as well," he said.
He was full of praise for the Indian GP and said the event has only helped in raising India`s profile as a sporting nation.
"The Indian GP is a big event. It`s a proud moment for India," Harbhajan said.
