By Ravi Jain It's sad to see how Harbhajan Singh, once a terrific attacking player and bowler, has reduced himself to being such a defensive bowler whose top priority seems to be, not to go for runs. Amit Mishra in the recent T20 World Cup demonstrated how a spinner can be a potent force if he is willing to bowl aggressively with lots of flight and conventional variations. Harbhajan Singh is certainly capable of bowling a lot better and Mumbai Indians would hope he can discover his mojo sooner than later. With Dwayne Smith and Glen Maxwell no longer around, MI, barring Rohit and Pollard and to some extent Hussey, really don't have world class fielders to man the inner ring or boundaries in the death overs. They will want to compensate their lack of skills with enthusiasm and 100% commitment, which Zaheer did admirably last evening.
