    Bravo Harbhajan!

    Cricinfo - Blogs - The Buzz - Bhajji helps Zimbabwe out

    Great gesture from Bhajji. I couldn't believe they managed with such substandard kits at international level. Doesn't ICC have mechanism to ensure players turn up with atleast international grade gear?

    wag.

    WAG. Can, and has been a bit of a **** on the field, but never judge a book by its cover and all that. Very nice gesture.

    yeah.. he can be pretty nice guy on a number of occassions. As a matter of fact, there are great stories of a physically challenged guy who travels with the Indian team for all its matches at home (he is sponsored by all the players, I reckon) and there was a piece on how much Yuvi and Bhajji interact with him, include him in fielding drills, scolding him for misfields and not diving (he has to walk using his legs and arms, because of his physical challenges).. There was a great piece on TV when Yuvi was explaining why they behaved this way with him, coz it was not fair to show them any sympathy, you just need to show them acceptance and try and be normal with them.. These guys are not always the villains they sometimes seem to be...

    Hopefully with Bhajji's efforts, these sponsorships can become long term (and also Zimbabwe's inclusion in international cricket as well)

    Good on Harbhajan but a saying about teaching someone to fish vs giving them fish comes to mind. The problem with Zimbabwean cricket remain and unless this leads to something (like, say, sponsorship), it's pissing in the wind.

    If I was the ZCU, I would find this extremely embarrassing.
