Chennai Super Kings (CSK) spinner Harbhajan Singh reveals the reason for his exit from the IPL this year. Senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh became the second high-profile player to withdraw from this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) on Friday for “personal reasons.” He said he had informed the Team Management of the Chennai Super Kings of his decision.
The 40-year-old, who has been a member of CSK for the past two years, is currently in Jalandhar, Punjab, with his family and has asked for privacy. The IPL begins in the United Arab Emirates on September 19 after being expelled from India for the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I informed the CSK management of my decision to withdraw from this year’s IPL. I have decided to take a break in these difficult times for personal reasons. I expect everyone to respect my need for privacy,” Harbhajan told PTI on Friday.
