A major setback for Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Harbhajan Singh has become the second high-profile name to pull out of this season. He cited ‘personal reasons’ and said that he informed the club team management about his decision.
The 40-year-old off-spinner, who has been a part of CSK during the past two years wrote on Twitter, “Dear Friends, 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, 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.
