Bhajji roots for Brazil in football World Cup
Kolkata: India`s star off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, rested for tour of Zimbabwe, today said he would root for Brazil in the upcoming FIFA World Cup beginning June 11 in South Africa.
Harbhajan confessed while he is not an avid football follower, his favourite side is title favourite Brazil.
"My favourite side is Brazil. I hope they beat all the opposition and win the World Cup. I will support them."
With the selectors opting to test India`s bench strength in their upcoming tour of Zimbabwe starting May 28th, Harbhajan is busy utilising the break to decorate his newly-built house in Jalandhar.
"Of course, it`s a welcome break. I just finished my new house. I am spending a lot of time with my family and utilising the time away from cricket as we get very little time. I am busy collecting different stuff from wherever I am getting to decorate my house," Harbhajan said.
Asked about marriage plans, the off-spinner said his first priority is 2011 World Cup to be hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and then would think of the wed-lock.
"We will see... At the moment, I do not have any plan as such. It seems you people are more concerned about my wed-lock. I am more focussed on the big event, World Cup, next year. After it gets over, we will see."
While promoting a beauty product in the city, Harbhajan, however, said he is not at all beauty conscious.
"We just apply the zinc cream to protect from skin burn. We use spa to tackle with mental fatigue especially after a match."
Harbhajan also added that he is utilising the break to indulge in some endurance-enhancement training.
"I do not go to gym very much as I do not want to build muscles and look bulky that will affect my bowling. But I stick to a lot of ground exercise, do a lot of running around the field to enhance my stamina and endurance that will help me on the cricket ground."
He also wished Suresh Raina and Co a good outing in Zimbabwe.
"They have good potential and I hope they come back with flying colours," he said.
