New Delhi: Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has always been an important part of the IPL league. In the last 13 years, he has won the IPL title four times with two champion teams. He will appear in the auction for the third time in his career. Harbhajan was part of the Mumbai team in the IPL from 2008 to 2017. He has been associated with Chennai Super Kings for the last three years.
The 40-year-old Harbhajan did not participate in the 13th season of the IPL in the UAE last year. He had then stated that he was taking this decision for personal reasons. This year CSK has released Harbhajan Singh. Harbhajan himself tweeting in January, giving information in this regard, said that the relationship between him and CSK is now over. This year he is entering the auction with a base price of two crore rupees. This year a number of teams can place bets on him in the auction, including his home team Punjab Kings.
This could be Harbhajan Singh’s last IPL, it is possible that he wants to end his IPL journey with his home team. Punjab also need an experienced spinner at the moment. Punjab have two young spin bowlers in the form of Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin, who could have taken advantage of Harbhajan’s experience. The team’s spin attack will also be strengthened. If the Punjab Kings team buys Harbhajan Singh, it will be the first time Bhajji will play for his home franchise in the IPL.
