India’s veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh revealed the best memory of his career. In fact, the Turbanator also revealed the toughest times of his career. Meanwhile, it is well known that a cricketer’s career is always mixed with some highs as well as lows, especially if it is a long career like Bhajji. Harbhajan has cherished a lot of sweet memories while playing for the nation.

However, Harbhajan also faced some controversies in his career. Thus, he had to deal with both. A sportsman journey is always a roller coaster ride like life. Consequently, there are some good memories whereas there are some harsh one as well.

Harbhajan Singh revealed that winning the World Cup in 2011 was the best moment of his career. India had achieved glory when they went on to win against Sri Lanka in the final. The off-spinner had scalped nine wickets in the nine matches he played in the coveted tournament in 2011.

When asked about the best memory of his career, Harbhajan Singh said while talking to ESPN Cricinfo, “Lots, but probably the 2011 World Cup”.

Meanwhile, Harbhajan also faced hardships in his career. Bhajji had to deal with some controversies as well and Monkeygate, Slapping Sreesanth in IPL were a few against his name.

However, Harbhajan believes the toughest time in his career was when he asked to prove his action. The off-spinner was accused of chucking and had to undergo tests to prove his action was legal.

“Early on, when I had to go for a chucking test and came to England to get my bowling action looked at [by Fred Titmus, in 1998]. That was very tough”.

Harbhajan Singh hasn’t yet called time on his International career. However, his return to the side is all but impossible. Bhajji has had an illustrious career and he can be proud of the same. The off-spinner had played for the Chennai Super Kings in the 11th edition of the IPL.
