Harbhajan Singh knows Rohit Sharma since 2007 when a young Rohit was a part of the Indian T20 World Cup squad. Since then, they both have shared a great bond as they played together in the IPL for the Mumbai Indians.
Harbhajan Singh has called Rohit as a ‘sweet guy’. He remembers the time when he met Rohit for the first time in the T20 World Cup in South Africa. Harbhajan also talked about the Mumbaiya style of Rohit Sharma.
He is a very sweet guy: Harbhajan
“I’ve known Rohit Sharma for a long time now. He joined the team for the first time at the T20 World Cup in South Africa. He used to sit behind my seat on the team bus. I still remember him talking in Mumbaiya style, saying things like ‘kaisa hai re tu?’ and ‘kaisa hai shaane?’. He is a very sweet guy,” Harbhajan said in a video on his YouTube channel.
“When I saw him, I knew that he was going to go a long way and that he would be one of the top batters in world cricket. We all know the kind of stature he has now as a batter and as a captain. He is a good batter but a ten times better person,” he added.
“Rohit Sharma has been the most successful captain in the history of the IPL. There is no bigger captain than MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. He has won five trophies, which is a big achievement. Yes, he has always had a good team with him, but the manner in which he leads the team is unbelievable,” Harbhajan concluded.
