Harbhajan backs Sachin's new ODI format

Chennai, Sept 23: India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh today supported senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar's suggestion to ICC on revamping the ODIs by splitting 50 overs into four innings.

"You will have to see as how it goes. Obviously, it is an idea and without experimenting it, you cannot say whether it is a good or bad. You have to experiment the idea to know whether it is good for the game or not," said Harbhajan.

Tendulkar had written a letter to the ICC to change the format of the ODIs from two innings of 50 overs to four of 25 overs each like a Test match but the game's world governing body rejected the idea.

"I support Sachin's every decision. This is obviously a great idea coming from a legend of the game. From my thinking as a player, I cannot say as to how successful it will be but it is necessary to experiment it. This is the way to go forward. So, definitely, I support Sachin's idea," added Harbhajan, who will be leading Mumbai Indians in this year's Champions League Twenty20 in the absence of their regular skipper Tendulkar, who has been ruled out due to an injury.
