'Not good for team atmosphere': Harbhajan Singh says KL Rahul-Sanjiv Goenka conversation should have happened in dressing room, praises Shah Rukh Khan

There is a lot of buzz around IPL franchise Lucknow Super Giants after their defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow recently. LSG owner Sanjiv Goenka was seen having a heated conversation with his skipper KL Rahul after the big defeat and it set social media ablaze.

Indian legend Harbhajan Singh suggested that such discussions should not have taken place in the open and could harm the team environment.

The former Indian partner suggested that it was normal to have disagreements with management, but that the resolution of these conflicts should have been done in a more private manner.

“There may be differences between the captain and management but the talks should take place behind closed doors, which is better for everyone. The discussions should have taken place in the locker room. Whatever discussions are going on, it is not good for the team atmosphere,” Harbhajan said on Featured sports.

“The timing was not good either,” he added.

Bhajji then cited his time with Kolkata Knight Riders and owner Shah Rukh Khan. He praised the KKR owner and mentioned that he was someone who did not get involved in cricket matters.

“KKR is a great unit, big fan of Khan Sahab. Hats off to this guy, he just doesn't interfere at all when it comes to cricket. Their locker room looks very secure,” Harbhajan said.

The former KKR man believes that a good mentor should ensure that the entire team is on the same page.
