Talking about his rivalry with Andrew Symonds , Harbhajan revealed that after Symonds and him played for Mumbai Indians together they got to know each other better and got along really well.
Watson said, ”The one thing I love about the IPL is you get to play with players and you get to know them personally. We have to be competitive in our fields. You have got an ego and you are pushing it over time, especially when you are playing for your country, it means not just that much to you but the whole public.”
