I am targeting a World Cup return: Harbhajan

I am targeting a World Cup return: Harbhajan
‘I am targeting the World Cup. It would be great to be a part of the team in Australia and New Zealand. For a player, World Cup is a big tournament and I am keeping my hopes alive,’ Harbhajan, who was part of India’s World Cup-winning team in the 2011 tournament, said on Wednesday.

‘Everyday I wake up, I stay positive and think that I am going to be part of the team. I am motivating myself to do well for India again. And of course I am looking forward to play all the games, make sure I perform well and get back into the Indian side,’ he added.

After maintaining a good run in the national one-day tournament, Punjab were outplayed by Karnataka in the title clash, but skipper Harbhajan was content with the team’s performance.

‘I am really happy with my bowling efforts, happy that I led the team to the Vijay Hazare finals. I am proud of my Punjab boys that they performed well. A bit unfortunate that we could not lift the trophy, just had a bad day in office. We should make sure that we come better prepared and we do even better to lift the trophy. We should just continue the hard work, the results will follow. If not on Wednesday then on Thursday,’ said the 34-year-old spinner, who last played for India in March 2013 in a Test match against Australia. Harbhajan is a veteran of 101 Tests and 229 ODIs.
