Kolkata: Out-of-favour off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Saturday credited Anil Kumble for his impressive comeback in the Indian Premier League saying encouraging words from the former India captain helped him regain his lost mojo.

"Anil bhai keeps telling me to back myself in whatever situation I bowl and always look to take wickets, even if you go for runs. If you bowl defensively thinking, 'okay, let me just get away by bowling a six-run over', it won't work because the batsman will make up for it in the next over," Harbhajan told ''.

Kumble joined Mumbai as team mentor at the start of the season.
