Another setback for CSK as Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Friday became the second high-profile cricketer after batsman Suresh Raina to pull out of IPL 2020 in UAE due to personal reasons. While the veteran off-spinner clearly stated that he wanted to stay with his family in this ‘difficult’ time and the CSK team-management have been very supportive towards his decision. There were speculations that the 13 personnel, including two cricketers testing positive for Covid-19, might have had a role in it.
“It wasn’t about the Covid cases in the Chennai camp. But if you have a wife and toddler staying in India for three months, your mind will be diverted and you can’t fully focus on the game. Then it doesn’t matter whether you get two crore or 20 crore. Money is last on your mind,” a friend of the player told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
Harbhajan, who is currently in Jalandhar, Punjab, requested privacy after his decision.
“I will not be playing IPL this year due to personal reasons. These are difficult times and I would expect some privacy as I spend time with my family. CSK management has been extremely supportive and I wish them a great IPL Stay safe and Jai Hind,” Harbhajan tweeted.
Harbhajan, who is one of the most successful bowlers in the history of IPL with 150 wickets, is the second high-profile Indian cricketer to miss out of the tournament after Suresh Raina, who left Dubai to be with his family after two of his family members died in a terrible crime in Punjab.
However, the 13th IPL was moved out of India due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the country. The IPL will be held across three venues in the UAE from September 19 to November 10.
