Jammu attacks: India must act tough

Three fidayeen (suicide guerrillas) from Pakistan attacked the Hiranagar police station and the officer's mess of an army regiment at Samba in Jammu and Kashmir on September 26. Twelve Indian policemen and army personnel were killed. This is the latest act of terrorism against India by Pakistan-trained terrorists. Lt Gen Harbhajan Singh writes.

External intelligence needs upgrade

Intelligence agencies are the eyes and ears of a nation. They have to ensure that the nation is not surprised diplomatically or militarily. They are responsible for the collection of information, besides carrying out analysis and building a comprehensive picture of the thinking, intentions, capabilities (military, economic, industrial, political will etc.) and plans of adversaries. Lt Gen Harbhajan Singh (retd) writes.

Lessons learnt, MI will improve

Fifty-days of non-stop cricket have come to an end, but we didn't achieve what we would have liked to in terms of results. It was a 'so-near, yet-so-far' kind of feeling for the Mumbai Indians and we have only ourselves to blame. Harbhajan Singh writes.

Cocktail of skill, nerve and luck saw us through

We couldn't have scripted a better ending to our league campaign. Twenty one runs in the last over is never an easy equation, but James Franklin and Ambati Rayudu saw us through. Harbhajan Singh writes.

Batting has let us down

We are getting ready to play our last league game in the IPL season this year. Suddenly, it's a do-or-die game for us. We never expected to be in this position, but that's the way it is and we need to back ourselves to get out of this situation. Harbhajan Singh writes.

Last two games good wakeup call

The last two games were tough for the Mumbai Indians. After doing reasonably well for almost a month, we faltered a bit and now the time has come to get the momentum back. Harbhajan Singh writes.

Bygones are bygones, Symmo a friend

Life as a cricketer isn’t easy and the last few months have been hectic. So, it’s nice to get a two-day break before stepping into the last 10 days of the tournament. Harbhajan Singh writes.

Four years on, Mumbai are a well-knit unit

As we move towards the final lap of IPL-4, there is already an air of expectancy in the Mumbai Indians' dressing room. So far, we have done justice to our abilities and played as a unit, says Harbhajan Singh.

We want to stay at the summit till the end

The IPL-4 has reached the halfway stage and we at the Mumbai Indians are pleased with what we have achieved so far. We have played eight games and managed to win six. Some were easy and some nail-biting encounters. Harbhajan Singh writes. Bhajji says

Sublime Warne only getting better with age

He isn’t an active player anymore, but wakes from his slumber every year to lead the Rajasthan Royals. Every time you assume he would be a tad unfit, his reflexes would be a touch slower, his mind won’t respond to situations as it used to, and the batsmen would get the better of him, writes Harbhajan Singh.

M for Malinga, the true match-winner for Mumbai

How would you describe 16 wickets in six matches? Isn't this an outstanding statistic, especially in a format tailor-made for batsmen? But that's what Lasith Malinga has managed to achieve in the IPL so far and has been one of the biggest weapons of the Mumbai Indian attack. Harbhajan Singh writes. Bhajji says

Once called misfit, spinners now are a vital part of T20

At the inception of the Twenty20, and then IPL, everyone was extremely worried about our tribe and whether spin bowling would be able to weather the onslaught. Harbhajan Singh writes.

Claiming early wickets worked

Another combined effort has ensured that we are back to winning ways. On a good Wankhede pitch, we responded well to the challenge of beating our neighbours, Pune Warriors. I was disappointed to miss the game due to an injury. Harbhajan Singh writes.

Expect Sachin's aura to silence the Bangalore crowd

It was a commendable way to start our IPL campaign. Mumbai Indians played brilliantly to outclass Delhi Daredevils at their home ground. The star of our victory was slinging Lasith Malinga, who was in the opposition dressing room just a week back, for the World Cup final.

No time for myself, but who's complaining

All good things must come to an end, and that is the case with the World Cup victory celebrations. Still there is no harm to talk about that epic achievement one more time before the fever of IPL 4 grips us all. Harbhajan Singh writes.
