If you had missed the first IPL match between CSK and RCB for some reason, you would be pleasantly surprised when you hear that Harbhajan Singh was the man who led the CSK to victory.

Harbhajan Singh\'s match winning performance for CSK

There was a general feeling amongst fans that, Harbhajan Singh had lost his magical touch, after having an underwhelming IPL 2018 and going wicketless in the three games he played for Punjab in this year's Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He also got into commentary which many felt were signs of him moving on. Hence, not many people expected him to feature in the Playing XI for CSK.

But, the 38-year-old veteran has buried all those thoughts with his match-winning performance in the first match against RCB, where he bowled in the Powerplay and picked up 3 early wickets, which included Virat Kohli and AB De Villers, from where RCB could never recover.  Harbhajan later revealed that coach Stephen Fleming informed him the day before about his inclusion, citing the reason that RCB had a lot of Left Handers in their side. As it turned out, it was tactically a genius move to play him in the team, and hopefully, he gets to play a lot more games for CSK this season as he still continues to entertain his fans.

Following this performance, Harbhajan Singh was showered with love from fans all over the world, and one of the comments that stood out came from another loved cricketer, Yuvraj Singh, which appropriately said,  "Form is temporary class is forever! Singh is king ". Paaji is still Gold in Yellow!!
