‘Credit goes to Stuart’

Bangalore: Rest of India captain Harbhajan Singh on Monday lauded Karnataka all-rounder Stuart Binny for virtually taking the game away from his team by scoring a sparkling unbeaten century.

“Credit must go to Binny for the manner in which he batted. He took the game away from us,” he told reporters at the end of the second day's play of the Irani Trophy match at Chinnaswamy stadium here.

Harbhajan said Binny, who cracked an unbeaten 115, played a waiting game to see off the second new ball and then launched an attack.

“He also played some cracking shots off the new ball,” he added.

Harbhajan said the day was disappointing for his boys as the ball didn't swing as it did to Karnataka bowlers on the first day.

The senior off-spinner said that his bowlers did their best but the fielding could have been better.
