MUMBAI: veteran out of roulette Harbhajan Singh on Wednesday called a former coach Greg Chappell It was like the worst days in Indian cricket.

In response to an article about the former decorated Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni where Chappell is quoted as saying that he used to advise the Ranchi stump hitter to play more on the ground rather than trying to hit every ball to the limit, Harbhajan tweeted: He asked Dhoni to play along the ground because the coach was hitting everyone in the park ... I was playing different games. He followed his tweet with a hashtag #worstdaysofindiancricketundergreg.

Previously, Chappell said that Ms dhoni He is the most powerful hitter I have ever seen.

Chappell served as coach of the Indian team for two years plagued by controversy between 2005 and 2007 in which he clashed with several high-ranking members of the team, especially the then captain and current chairman of the Cricket Control Board in India (BCCI) Sourav Ganguly .

However, his time was also known for the rise of several younger players on the team, including Dhoni and Suresh Raina .

I vividly remember being amazed when I saw him hit the first time. He was definitely the most exciting cricket player in India at the time. He used to hit the ball from the most unusual positions. He's the most powerful hitter I've seen him, Chappell said during a chat session on the Playwrite Foundation's Facebook ID.

I remember his 183 hit against Sri Lanka and how it shattered them. It was the best power shot. The next game was in Pune. I asked MS, 'Why don't you play more on the ground instead of trying to hit every ball to the limit. We were chasing 260-odd and we were in a good position and Dhoni was playing a contrasting inning that he had played just a couple of days earlier.

We still needed 20 runs to win and Dhoni asked me, through 12th man RP Singh, if I could hit six. I said no until the target was in single digits. When we needed six runs to win, he ended the game with a six, he said.
