Harbhajan Singh’s brilliant career has come to an end. On Friday (December 24), the talismanic off-spinner made the big announcement on Twitter. Harbhajan Singh, regarded as one of the best spinners of all time, had a fantastic international career. He could make even the finest batters dance to his tunes, and he led India to several victories in all formats.

Harbhajan Singh was instrumental in India’s victories at the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup. The off-spinner from Punjab made his international debut in 1998 and quickly cemented his position in the national team. He teamed up with a leg-spinner, and the two tormented batting lineups together.

The office is best recognized for his heroics against Australia in the historic 2001 Border-Gavaskar series, where he took 32 wickets in three matches, including a stunning hat-trick. Since then, he hasn’t looked back as the spinner has destroyed record after record. He also had a great season with the Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, and Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

In addition to being a wicket-taker, Harbhajan was a useful hitter deeper down the order. In fact, he scored a century in two consecutive Tests against New Zealand. Harbhajan Singh is India’s second-most successful bowler behind Anil Kumble, with 711 wickets in international cricket. However, if he had played more international cricket in his later years, his numbers would have been even better.

His most recent international outing was in a T20 international in 2016. In terms of professional cricket, Harbhajan was last seen in KKR colours during the IPL 2021 season. When he arrived at the talismanic spinner’s post, he expressed gratitude to his supporters and well-wishers for making his 23-year-long journey so lovely.

“All good things must come to an end, and as I say goodbye to the game that has given me everything in life, I’d want to thank everyone who has contributed to making my 23-year journey beautiful and memorable.” Thank you from the bottom of my heart. “I’m grateful,” the 41-year-old said on Twitter.
