Harbhajan Singh Biography & short wiki
Harbhajan Singh was born in the Sikh family. He is the only son of Sardar Sardev Singh Plah, a businessman who owned a ball bearing and valve factory.
Harbhajan grew up with five sisters and was to inherit the family business, but his father insisted that he focus on his cricket career and represent India.
Harbhajan was trained as a hitter by his first coach, Charanjit Singh Bhullar, but he switched to bowling after his coach moved to Davinder Arora after his early death.
Arora attributes the success of Harbhajan to a work ethic that included a three-hour training session in the morning and then an afternoon session from 3:00 pm until after sunset.
After his father’s death in 2000, Harbhajan became head of the family and organized the marriage of his three sisters until 2001.
In 2002, he ruled out his own marriage at least until 2008. In 2005, he again denied rumors of marriage to a Bangalore bride and declared that he would not make a decision until “a few years later” and would be looking for a Punjabi bride chosen by his family.
In a country where cricket players are idolized, Harbhajan’s performances have brought him government awards and lucrative sponsorship money.
After his performance against Australia in 2001, the Punjab government granted him 5 lakhs, a plot of land and an offer to become a deputy police commissioner in Punjab, which he accepted.
Although he had a job in the gendarmerie, Harbhajan suffered minor injuries in March 2002 during an argument with the police outside the “Team Hotel” in Guwahati.
The collision broke out when Harbhajan protested with the police after they refused to let the photographer into the hotel.
Harbhajan cut his arm into the bowling alley when the police hit him and hurt his elbow.
Extensive negotiations with local officials and organizers were necessary to prevent Harbhajan and Captain Sourav Ganguly from leaving the area after Ganguly said the Indian team was canceling the planned match with Zimbabwe.
Singh was caught at Auckland Airport for not explaining that he had dirty shoes in his luggage.
His only excuse was that he “couldn’t care less” because he was complying with New Zealand quarantine regulations. He was fined $200 on the spot.
Playing Style of Harbhajan Singh
Harbhajan is an aggressive bowler who is valued for his ball control and ability to vary length and pace, although he is often criticized for his flat trajectory.
His main goalkeeper’s ball climbs maliciously onto the unsuspecting batter from a good length and forces him to change his stroke at the last second. With a whipping bowling action, he was reported for throwing in November 1998.
Although he was forced to travel to England for tests, his action was released by former English player Fred Titmus.
