Harbhajan bats for Tendulkar

September 07, 2012 15:37 IST

Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh backed senior teammate Sachin Tendulkar, insisting that he remains a phenomenon despite being off-colour in the just-concluded Test series against New Zealand.

-I'm looking forward to playing again for India: Harbhajan

"I don't want to comment on what others have said. But Sachin is somebody we all have looked up to while playing. He is the best cricketer I have played with," Harbhajan said.

Harbhajan Singh"He scores 100s but never gets tired. His hunger for runs is amazing. He is truly a phenomenon, a legend and the God of cricket. Yet he keeps himself so simple. You learn a lot from him," he added.

The 39-year-old Tendulkar was bowled thrice in four innings in the just-concluded India-New Zealand Test series, prompting many to announce that age is catching up with him.
