Harbhajan Singh said that back in the 2011 campaign, India kept away the media pressure by not reading newspapers during the tournament. “Those times [2011] were different. You could get away by not reading newspapers. Now, everything is there on social media. Gary Kirsten had set up a rule and asked us not to read newspapers. If you don’t perform well on a particular day, you will see what people will do on social media. I would advise players to stay away from social media,” he told India Today on Wednesday.
