Our women in blue are doing us proud in England at the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup 2017. Riding high on confidence, their three back-to-back wins in the series have raised our expectations and hopes of bringing the trophy back home. While the nation is rooting for the team and applauding its daring skipper Mithali Raj, ace spinner Harbhajan Singh is no exception. After India‘s massive victory over Pakistan on Sunday, Bhajji shared his thoughts with us, on our dashing women squad. “I want to wish them all the luck, going forward. They have won three out of three games and I want them to continue with their great work. Hopefully they will bring the cup back to India. That will be a very very proud moment for all of us.”

The cricketer, who celebrated his birthday yesterday, also stressed on how games should be looked at purely as games, instead of portraying them as rivalry or revenge. Many perceived India’s win on Sunday as a revenge of sorts for Kohli and his team’s loss in the Champions Trophy Final against Pakistan.

One of the tweets read, “Revenge is best when served by Indian women’s team! Well played girls, you have made us proud #INDVSPAK.” Bhajji said, “It’s great that we won and we are proud of our girls, lekin mujhe nahi lagta ke revenge ki baat honi chahiye . This win has nothing to do with revenge whatsoever. The other day (Champions Trophy final) Pakistan played well and they won. On Sunday, our team played well and we won. Game ko game hi rehne doh. Let’s not get into revenge and other issues .”
