Harbhajan Singh was only given one over in Kolkata Knight Riders’ opening match in IPL 2021, against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The 40-year-old did not bowl again after his solitary over but kept on supporting his teammates by talking to them and sharing his experience in between the match at Chennai's Chepauk.

But the veteran spinner, who made his KKR debut on Sunday, has said that he is clear about his role, which includes mentorship, in the Kolkata-based franchise.

KKR captain Eoin Morgan, on Sunday, hailed Harbhajan Singh for his selfless attitude and showing more energy than anyone else in the team.

“Bhajji (Harbhajan Singh) starting really well in the first over and then not playing a part but using his experience to get around the guys in the game shows that (selflessness in the side),” said Eoin Morgan in the post-match presentation.
