Rohit Sharma’s isn’t the only cricketer who has a love affair with the Eden Gardens. He is one of them amongst many who had some wonderful performances in this venue. India’s off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is one such cricketer, who has very fond memories of this ground.
As much as Eden Gardens belongs to VVS Laxman for his epic 281 against Australia in that historic Test against Australia in 2011, it is also Harbhajan Singh’s happy hunting ground, where he took 13 wickets in that particular match.
That is why if and when Harbhajan Singh retires from international cricket, he wants to do it from this ground only. “I have not planned anything but yes, whenever I would think I would like to play my last game at the Eden. But that has got to be in a Test,” Harbhajan Singh was quoted as saying in the media on the eve of the 3rd T20 match between India and South Africa on Wednesday.
“Eden is a very very special place. Playing cricket in Eden is always special. This is like coming home and playing cricket. If people say cricket in England is at Lord’s, then in India for me this is the best place to play cricket. I have got some great memories playing here and hopefully I can continue to do well here,” he added.
