Harbhajan Singh Retires From All Formats of Cricket

Chandigarh: Harbhajan Singh, India’s most-successful off-spinner, announced his retirement from all formats of cricket on Friday. In his career, the 41-year-old from Punjab, also known as “The Turbanator” and “Bhajji”, has taken 417 wickets in 103 tests, 269 wickets in 236 ODIs, 25 wickets in 28 T20 and 150 wickets in 163 IPL matches.

“All good things come to an end and today as I bid adieu to the game that has given me everything in life, I would like to thank everyone who made this 23-year-long journey beautiful and memorable. My heartfelt thank you,” twitted the off-spinner.

Harbhajan Singh made his international debut in an ODI against New Zealand in Sharjah on April 17th, 1998. He played his last match for India in the T20 against UAE in Dhaka in March 2016. He took 32 wickets in the three-test series against Australia in March 2001, including the first test hat-trick by an Indian, which is one of the most memorable moments of his career.
