We have to be smarter than the last 3 games: Harbhajan

Faced with a do-or-die situation against South Africa in Thursday’s fourth ODI, senior Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Wednesday said his team’s bowlers will have to be smarter than what they have been so far in the series.

India are 1-2 down in the five-match rubber and need to win on Thursday to be in with a chance of upstaging the rampaging Proteas in the fifth and final match scheduled in Mumbai on Sunday.

“Obviously, we are in a tricky situation. We have to win tomorrow to be in the series. We have got the team which can turn things around. I want to say one thing that the team will be going all out to win the game tomorrow (on Thursday) and from there onwards, we will hopefully put up another good performance. Things can be different in one week's time,” Harbhajan said.

Amit Mishra is available for fourth one-day match: singh
Beleaguered leg-spinner Amit Mishra is "available" for the fourth one-dayer against South Africa and his selection in the playing XI would depend on nature of the Chepuk track, senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has said.

A police complaint has been filed against Mishra in Bangalore by a woman, who alleged that the India cricketer abused and assaulted her.

Harbhajan said that the incident does not affect Mishra's place in the team.

"Amit Mishra is definitely available for tomorrow. If the management feels that he should be playing on this track, he will play," Harbhajan said.
