“I haven’t made up my mind about my future plans, but I hope to continue being involved with cricket because it is via cricket that people are familiar with me. In terms of my political career, I’ll tell you about it myself. I’ll inform everyone as soon as it occurs “During a news conference on Saturday, Harbhajan said. The 41-year-old spinner has appeared in 103 Tests, 236 One-Day Internationals, and 28 Twenty-20 Internationals for the Men in Blue.

“To be honest, I haven’t given it much thought. I’ve received offers from many parties to join them, but I’ll have to sit and consider them carefully. Because this is tough work, it will not be a simple decision. I’m not going to do anything half-heartedly. I will attempt it on the day I believe I am capable of doing so “he added.

Harbhajan’s last red-ball encounter was against Sri Lanka in 2015, and his last one-day international was against South Africa the same year. In the 2016 Asia Cup, he last played for India in a T20I against UAE. He hasn’t been selected for the Indian team since then. Harbhajan Singh departs with 417 wickets at an average of 32.46 in 103 Tests.

“I would not have gotten to this point if it hadn’t been for cricket. God has been so gracious to me. My experience has been incredible, and I plan to compete in the Legends League. I have not considered competing in international leagues. The purpose of retiring is to spend more time with your family, and I intend to do just that. I could have played IPL if I had to play competitive cricket. I believe now is the best moment to retire, “Harbhajan stated.

Navjot Singh Sidhu, a Punjab Congress leader and former cricketer, had sparked conjecture months before the state’s Assembly elections when he tweeted a selfie of himself with fellow player Harbhajan Singh.
