Harbhajan Singh Announces His Retirement From All Forms Of Cricket; Check Out The Full Story

Harbhajan Singh has stated that he would retire from all forms of the game. In a video statement on Twitter, the former India off-spinner stated that “in many ways, I had already retired.” He was obliged to postpone the announcement due to his responsibilities with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL.


Harbhajan, now 41, made his international debut in a Test match against Australia in Bengaluru in March 1998. He went on to play 103 Tests, taking 417 wickets at an average of 32.46, with an innings best of 8 for 84 and a match best of 15 for 217. Both set in India’s two-wicket triumph over Australia in the Chennai Test of 2001, giving India a 2-1 series win. Harbhajan Singh played a key part in India’s remarkable come-from-behind triumph in the previous Test in Kolkata.

“My journey from the streets of Jalandhar to become the Turnabator for Team India has been a beautiful one. There is no bigger motivation for me in life than stepping out on the field while wearing the India jersey. However, there comes a time in life where we have to take a tough decision and you have to move forward in life. I was waiting for the last few years to make this announcement public – I am retiring from all forms of cricket,” Harbhajan said on his official YouTube channel.


Rohit Sharma, Team India’s limited-overs captain, expressed his congratulations on ex-India spinner Harbhajan Singh’s retirement from all forms of cricket. The former Indian cricket team spinner announced his retirement on Friday via social media, capping off a remarkable career that featured the 50-over World Cup success as well as the maiden T20 World Cup victory under then-captain MS Dhoni’s guidance. Rohit stated, “What an opponent!!! Bhajju pa, you’ve had a fantastic career; enjoy your retirement. @harbhajan singh, I’m confident I’ll meet you on the other side.”
