Harbhajan Singh heaps praise on comeback man Ashish Nehra

New Delhi: Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Tuesday heaped praise on speedster Ashish Nehra, who is making a return into the national team after a long gap of four-and-a-half years.

“Ashish Nehra has been a match-winner for India.....Just check the scorebooks as to how many matches Nehra has won for the country,” Bhajji told PTI.

As a surprise inclusion, national selectors have recently picked the 36-year-old in India's T20 squad for the forthcoming tour of Australia.

The 'Turbanator' was quick to remind that the ageing left-arm seamer is a big tournament player as he added, “ He played a big part during the 2003 World Cup in South Africa and he was our unsung hero in the 2011 World Cup campaign.”

Harbhajan, 35, also pointed out that age can never be a criteria for ignoring any individual.

“If I am in the Indian team and in the mix for the World T20, it is because I have done well in the IPL. And what is this all fuss about age?”
