Former India cricketer Harbhajan Singh has advised the Indian cricket team to not touch their phones for the next two months. Harbhajan has said that the pressure will be immense on the Indian team due to the ODI World Cup at home.
Harbhajan Singh said that back in the 2011 campaign, India kept away the media pressure by not reading newspapers during the tournament. “Those times  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.
