Learning from Legends: Harbhajan Singh’s Advice for Rohit Sharma

Harbhajan Singh has suggested that Rohit Sharma should draw inspiration from the legendary MS Dhoni. Dhoni led a young Indian team to a historic title victory in 2007, exceeding all expectations. Interestingly, Rohit Sharma was part of that squad and has been advised to learn from his first captain in T20Is.

“Not everyone knows this, but Dhoni was relatively new to captaincy, so he relied on support from all of us. Before matches against teams like Australia, New Zealand, and England, our core group would gather during the game to plan out strategies for the upcoming overs.

For example, in a match against Australia, I bowled the crucial 17th or 18th overs because if we managed to give away only 4 runs, it saved us a lot,” Harbhajan shared with Star Sports.

“Back then, batsmen weren’t scoring 25 runs in an over like they do today. Decision-making was always a team effort. When you play as a cohesive unit, you tend to win more. Dhoni was excellent at listening and making decisions that benefitted the team collectively. It wasn’t about individual performances but about playing as a team.

“Similarly, the question now is whether Rohit Sharma can do the same? Rohit isn’t alone; it’s about the team. If we play together, focusing on our collective success rather than personal achievements, then we can win. But if we only concentrate on individual goals, it becomes challenging. It’s all about having a team mentality, and that’s when success happens,” he concluded.
