New Delhi: Getting a chance to interact with two global sporting legends in a space of two months is an experience in itself and Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh feels "blessed" to have interacted with Pele and now Usain Bolt. (See pics here)

"I think cricket is there in Usain Bolt's blood. Since I got to watch from close quarters, it was amazing to see him run-up to bowl. The perfect delivery stride is understandable because he is a world champion athlete. But the manner, he loaded at the crease and then bowled the ball left me zapped.

Probably, he would have been as successful playing cricket as he had been in athletics," Harbhajan, who played alongside the Jamaican legend in the match, told PTI today.
