India tough to beat on home turf, says HarbhajanOctober 5th, 2008 - 6:46 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, Oct 5 (IANS) Harbhajan Singh began the war of words ahead of the four Test series against Australia that begins Thursday, saying the World Champions will find it difficult to beat the Indians on their home turf.”We have a very good side and we are probably the only team that have given them a run for their money,” Harbhajan was quoted as saying in the Daily Telegraph.
“Every time they play against us, they know we are tough. Especially when we play in India, we are a totally different team.”
Harbhajan, who along with Andrew Symonds was at the centre of the acrimonious series against Australia early this year, said the visitors will see the same fighting spirit in him as it was in the series Down Under.
“Obviously, when I play for my country I go out there to win games, I’m not there to make friends,” he said.
“So, you’ll expect the same sort of fighting spirit. I am very passionate about my game and I get involved in the game.”
