Former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh feels team India can finally end their ICC Trophy jinx by winning the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. Notably, the Men in Blue are once again looking in imperious form in the ongoing tournament, being so far unbeaten in the event. The Rohit Sharma-led side has won four of the five matches so far, with one game being a washout against Canada.

Having convincingly beaten Bangladesh by 50 runs in the Super 8 fixture, India is on the cusp of securing a spot in the semi-finals. The team’s form and cohesion have caught Harbhajan’s attention.

“Our team has shown exceptional form in the T20 World Cup so far, with every player in the playing 11 contributing significantly. We have been playing our A-game ticking all the boxes. The boys are in great touch, and the confidence is high. If we continue to play with the same determination, intensity, and passion I do not doubt that we can get over the line and bring the World Cup home for the first time after 2007,” Harbhajan said on Disney+ Hotstar.

India’s last ICC trophy victory dates back to 2013. Despite consistently reaching knockout stages, they’ve faltered in the finals. The T20 World Cup, which India won in its inaugural edition in 2007, remains elusive since then.

Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, India aims to rewrite history. Harbhajan believes that if the team continues playing with determination, intensity, and passion, they can lift the World Cup for the first time since 2007.
