Sachin made Harbhajan Singh bat against the bowling machine during the indoor practice session in the ongoing tour in Newzealand. Sachin decided to operate the machine himself. Harbhajan after a few unsuccessful attempts in making contact with the ball from the machine said "paaji nahi ho raha …meaning (I can't do this),” but Sachin insisted him to continue. So Harbhajan tried again. Harbhajan was uncomfortable facing in swingers and fearing injury harbhajan pleaded Sachin not to bowl in swingers but Sachin continued with another swinger which Harbhajan mistimed and got bowled. While harbhajan adjusted the stumps another delivery came safely swinging away from the stumps and Sachin laughed loudly, he was thoroughly entertained and when Sachin is happy, usually so is the whole of India.
