Harbhajan Singh is one of the biggest bowling legends that the Indian soil has provided to the game of Cricket.
The Veteran spinner has lead the Indian bowling forefront for more than a decade.
Harbhajan Singh is widely known by the names of Turbanator and Bhajji inside and outside the Cricket ground.
He has finally bid adieu to the game of Cricket after a 23 years long and prestigious journey.
Harbhajan Singh’s Farewell
Harbhajan Singh on Friday announced his retirement from all forms of Cricket through his social media handles.
In a tweet, Bhajji wrote: “All good things come to an end and today as I bid adieu to the game that has given me everything in life, I would like to thank everyone who made this 23-year-long journey beautiful and memorable. My heartfelt thank you. Grateful.
Harbhajan Shared a video along with the tweet where he explained his decision to call it a day. He said in the video:
“My journey from the streets of Jalandhar to the Indian team has been spectacular. I have never had the sort of motivation that I did when I was wearing the India jersey. But there comes a time when you have to take the tough decisions and move ahead. I have been willing to make an announcement for the past few years and have been waiting to share this moment with you.
Today, I am announcing my retirement from all forms of the game. Though informally, I had taken retirement before but couldn’t announce it. I have not been playing active cricket for a while but due to commitments with KKR, I have wanted to stay with them. I had already decided to retire. Like every other cricketer, I wanted to say goodbye to this game in the Indian jersey but fate probably had something else in mind.
Whichever team I have played for, I have tried to help them finish at the top, be it Indian team, KKR, MI, CSK or the county sides.”
Harbhajan Singh is undoubtedly one pf the greatest player and bowler to play for Team India.
He was the first Indian to take a hat-trick in test cricket.
Bhajji is the the fourth highest test wicket taker after Anil Kumble, Kapil Dev and Ravichandran Ashwin with 417 wickets.
He has grabbed 265 wickets in the 234 One Day Internationals he has played for Team India.
The 9th fastest to reach 400 test wickets.
Harbhajan Singh is one of the few players who were part of 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ICC World Cup and 2013 Champion’s Trophy victories.
Bhajji’s six on Amir in 2010 Asia Cup is an unforgettable moment. Dhoni even addressed Bhajji as an All-rounder following that match.
The game of Cricket and whole Indian nation would miss Harbhajan Singh forever and will never forget his contribution to the game and to his country.
