It was my father’s dream to make me a cricketer: Harbhajan

Mumbai, Jan 6 (IANS) India’s veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh says it was his late father Sardar Sardev Singhs dream to see him become a cricketer.

Harbhajan will next be seen in the upcoming episode of popular singing reality show “The Voice India Season 2”. He will be cheering for 19-year-old contestant Farhan Sabir.

Finding similarities with Farhan’s situation in life, Harbhajan also remembered his days of struggle.

“Farhan is a fabulous singer and I literally got goosebumps when he was performing on stage. Farhan and my story is somewhat similar and that got me even more connected to him,” Harbhajan said in a statement.

“I too lost my father at a young age and it was his dream that I should be a cricketer. If his parents prayers and good wishes stay with him he will definitely make his mark in the singing industry,” he added.
