Harbhajan is excellent when he is playing well but when he is playing badlyhe doesnt attack you with 393 wickets Maybe when he was youngerthe undoubted grit in him ignited performance He has an inspiring story to tell; of perseveranceof fighting rejectionof facing failure He rode above that to become the player he could be Now he needs to rediscover something else for fame and acceptance can dull the fire within; sometimes the perks of success can overwhelm and come in the way of greater success Beyond a point the perks are easily available but that is not what a champion plays for Maybe there is doubt somewheremaybe insecurity is buzzing aroundboth can push you into a comfort zonethat great enemy of achievement Maybe he needs to combat it all over againlike his mentor the great Anil Kumble did and ended up becoming the best player he could be From here on Harbhajan will have to look beyond numbersstop scouring the horizon for competition for there is no one of his ability there He needs to fly beyond and search withinlet his ambition drag him to untenanted peaks It can only come from being the bowler he wants to be When the great Shane Warne wasnt bowling the way he wanted to he hopped on a flight to Adelaide to meet his old mentor and just bowled and bowled and bowled till the ball obeyed him As spinners goHarbhajan is still young enough to look ahead rather than behind Greatness is not out of bounds; it visited Courtney Walsh and evenKumble a touch later But he must look within for that is where the greatest strength resides Today he is being unfair to himself and anyone who tells him otherwise is telling him tales I believe Harbhajan Singh was born to be great But now he must make his tryst with destiny And he must do it himself That ball pinged on leg stump can only be an occasional concession to a situation For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsEver since the first season of the Pro Kabaddi League back in 2014 organisers have been working on ways to keep the audience hooked and coming back for more The concept itself of a rustic sport evolving into glitzy pulsating entertainment had struck a chord So much so that the second season — often considered the true test of any marquee event’s success — turned to be an edition even more popular than the first Yet in that perennial search for the right formula — just like the Indian Premier League (IPL) had found its own format — PKL has been undergoing constant change For the fifth season the tournament expanded both in terms of participating teams and duration The original eight franchises were accompanied by the addition of four new teams — Gujarat Fortunegiants Tamil Thalaivas UP Yoddha and Haryana Steelers Pro Kabaddi League expanded from a 4-week event to a 12-week slugfest Image courtesy: Twitter @ProKabaddi More crucial though has been the tournament’s transformation from being a six-week marvel — packed with high-caliber entertainment — to a gruelling 13-week slugfest For all the intentions of creating a product that remains in a prime-time broadcast for a long period of time the three-month league only ended up diluting the excitement A longer PKL means a better payday for the players and the fact that they get to stay in the limelight for more time But there is a flipside to it sinceit’s such a physical sport Most of the players are not used to a non-stop three-month league The cracks had begun to show early on as big-name players began reeling under the physical pressure The harsh nature of the game — a full-blooded contact sport with crunching tackles and quick-witted evasive maneuvers — needs to be considered Recovery between matches had been a pressing issue from the first season itself particularly for a host team in the caravan system the league follows Earlier the home team would play four matches on consecutive days Now each franchise has to play six matches over seven days U Mumba in particular a team that had reached the final of the first three editions and were champions of the second season struggled as key defenders Joginder Narwal and D Suresh Kumar were forced out of the tournament early and the squad had to make use of several inexperienced players to make the team The anarchy in the ranks was apparent and the team struggled to weave even two wins in a row Even Jaipur Pink Panthers’ most expensive buys — Manjeet Chhillar and Selvamani K — were sidelined for a chunk of the event with injuries Though each team was allowed a larger roster a maximum of 25 players a great number of fringe players were being pushed into the limelight prematurely There were a few youngsters namely Sachin Tanwar and Vishal Bhardwaj — who left a mark on the game but most were left finding their feet their mistakes amplified on multiple cameras While raiders are lone rangers defenders usually rely on team work and the defensive lapses through the season were alarming It became especially apparent during do-or-die raids where the onus is on the raider to tag But a number of times defenders would charge at them mindlessly giving away crucial points So weak was the defensive performance by teams that a raiding record that had been set in season two had been broken three times Kashiling Adake then a star player for Dabang Delhi had scored 24 points in a match to set the record In this season UP Yoddha’s Rishank Devadiga took the tally to 28 before Rohit Kumar set it at 32 Pardeep eventually took it up to 34 during the second eliminator against Haryana Steelers Losing finalists Gujarat Fortunegiants in turn were the only team to have taken up a strong defensive structure Yet that too was based more on the skill and camaraderie of Iranian defenders Abozar Mighani and Fazel Atrachali The pair alone notched 122 successful tackles just over half of the 242 their team had amassed in total The auction conducted before the season reshuffled the pack and the big-name players were scattered and the talent was spread out thin India as seen in the past PKL editions and last year’s Kabaddi World Cup has a wealth of talent but not all of them seemed ready for the big-show business Cricket is by far the sport where the country’s reserves run deepest And even the IPL which also has marquee foreign names has not extended beyond the eight teams There is still uncertainty over how frequently the player auctions will happen The constant reshuffling has meant that teams have not been able to form a core group — for this season teams were allowed to retain only one player It has kept the owners from investing to build an ‘icon’ player the face of the franchise or create player and team rivalries Of the bunch of marquee players from the first season only U Mumba’s Anup Kumar has not hopped teams Early on the TRPs claimed to have overtaken those of cricket Audience fatigue is a very real danger in most sports even more so now given the number of games and channels jostling for attention Three months at a stretch six days of the week would seem excessive for most sports With the League doing so well in such a short time there is an obvious effort to cash in on the popularity But the organisers’ relentless experimentation which peaked at the confusing six-team qualifier/eliminator play-offs means neither fans nor franchises have been able to settle into a groove More so by stretching it to a three-month League they run the risk of diluting the intensity and in turn dulling a sport that had begun with great promise Among other things.
