With truckloads of salt actually. But he also said these:

1 - Murali is a javelin thrower, not a bowler.
2- Gavaskar wants all the limelight without any responsibility.

We really need to appreciate Bhajji's attitude. Inspite of criticism and all the boo's from Australian public he just played his natural game and rather gave it back to them with his perfomance.

Aussies tried to attack Bhajji for obvious reasons.He has been the one bowler who has troubled them the most in the last 5-6yrs.Also as he looks 'different' than other Indian players so they must have thought that crowd will also be after him as happened.They tried to(and have been doing for last few yrs) project him as the bad boy of cricket thinking that he will eventually break down.But he replied with his performance and was quite instrumental in both finals,best part his involvement in dismissal of both his 'friends' in both finals.It cant get better than this.this confidence gain will help him great deal in future.
He is the flag bearer of present breed of players who have come from modest background and still have his feet firmly on ground.Just after when he made his debut and earned some money,he presented his two BILs and sisters with scooters.He had lost his father then.But probably Aussies wont understand this.

Well for the last 2-3 years he has been on a slide. He hardly got a wicket before the Australian series in one days, tests are a different story altogether. How easy we give in to mere hypes... the controversy has also helped bhajji.
Remember how badly he bowled in the test matches in Australia?

Ya he didnt get wickets but he came back and came back real loud. For a person to come back like that after being treated like a (well cant find suitable words) he came and left the entire place watching. We keep pulling down some person as soon as something small goes wrong and when he does something great we cheer him up but we should realise the amount of pain which might have gone into getting a place there.
Well great going team only thing is hold on as the job is never done here.
