India Win’s World Cup 2011

April 5, 2011

Dream Come true after 28 years

“We had decided to chair him around the stadium if India won the World Cup,” said the off-spinner who is personally close to Tendulkar ( Harbhajan ).

 

Harbhajan has vivid memories of the stand-out moments in Indian cricket’s greatest triumph at home and Tendulkar’s role in them.

Recalling the team’s triumph against Pakistan in the semi-final at Mohali last week, he said that the players were drained after the high-pressure match but had a sense of triumph.

However, Tendulkar was asking his teammates in the dressing room to “cool down”, reminding them “the next three days (to the final against Sri Lanka) are the most important days of our lives and so cool down and keep focus”.

Harbhajan candidly admitted that for the first time in his career he was tense, almost scared, before the match against arch rivals Pakistan.

“Everyone from a doorman to a billionaire, was urging us on. The pressure had begun to get to me”, he said.
