New Delhi: He has been a match-winner over the years for the Indian cricket team who takes on South Africa in the final T20 international, at the Eden Gardens. The hosts need Harbhajan Singh to weave his magic yet again in Kolkata.
The offie has fond memories of the ground as it was at the Eden Gardens that he claimed his maiden Test hat-trick in the memorable series against Australia in 2001.
The 35-year-old was positive ahead of the third T20 despite losing the series.
"We have lost the series but we still have a lot to play in the final game. Hopefully we will win and from there onward it could be a different story," Harbhajan told reporters on the eve of the match
While Ravichandran Ashwin has performed brilliantly in the last two matches, MS Dhoni would want Bhajji to bring his experience into count to flummox the Proteas.
Harbhajan, who is not a part of India's ODI squad, possibly has a last chance of showing his worth as a champion spinner. He has 24 wickets to his name from 27 matches and if he does well at the Eden Gardens on Thursday, it would be difficult for the selectors not to consider him for next year's ICC World T20.
