Harbhajan stated that Team owner Nita Ambani had worked exceptionally hard to slate a strategy for the team. "Nita Bhabhi has worked hard. Yesterday also, we sat till 4 am in the morning", said Bhajji.

Asked about the atmosphere in the auction room, Bhajji admitted nerves were developing. "I was a little tense, (it's) more intense than playing cricket", said the off-spinner.

Harbhajan also expressed the fact that they would have liked to include Sunil Narine and Brendon McCullum, both who went to Kolkata Knight Riders after Mumbai had pulled out.

The Turbanator also expressed that the team now has a sense of flexibility, allowing them to change the team as per the conditions.
