Dominica: Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who has become the 11th bowler to pick up 400 wickets in Tests, says it was batting legend Sachin Tendulkar who helped him to add variation to his deliveries. (Also See: Harbhajan completes 400 wickets)
Harbahajan said it was Tendulkar who taught him how to bowl the slider, a different type of outswinger.
"Whenever I bowl to Sachin in the nets, I ask him what I should be doing. When I tour Australia or New Zealand, I take his advice. He showed me how to bowl a slider, a kind of outswinger, which I have used in ODIs and even taken wickets in Tests. But a slider can only be bowled with a new ball," said Harbhajan.
