Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh feels skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's innings of 91 not out against Sri Lanka was the important factor in India winning the historic World Cup final against Sri Lanka last month.

"It has to be Dhoni. He played a captain's innings in the final and decided to bat up the order. It was a brave move by him," Harbhajan said during a promotional event for Pepsi.

As the discussion veered towards improvisation in the limited overs format, the senior off-spinner said that one needs to keep on evolving in order to improve.

"You need to bring in some changes in your game and that is exactly what I try doing. That is how I learnt to bowl doosra and realised that doosra gets you a lot of wickets." Harbhajan said shooting in front of the camera and being shot while playing were two different experiences.

"It's completely different experience. On field there is a different kind of camera, on which you don't tend to focus whereas while shooting you have a camera where you need to focus and also there are retakes while on a shoot. This is not possible while playing a match."

Earlier, the event, which was supposed to be held outside the BCCI headquarters, located inside the Wankhede Stadium premises, had to be shifted just outside the venue as the organisers were denied permission for it by the Board.
