Another renowned Indian cricketer, Harbhajan Singh, also known as ‘Bhajji’, might just announce his retirement post IPL 2019.

The 38-year-old off-spinner's comeback chances to Team India are next to impossible considering the availability of so many skillful spinners within the Indian circuit. Therefore, he may choose this year's IPL as a platform to bid farewell to the gentlemen's game.

Harbhajan's journey at the IPL started with Mumbai Indians way back in 2008. He lasted with them for a decade until he was released eventually, only to be purchased by Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2017.

Alongside Hit-Man Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan is only other player to have won the IPL on 4 occasions - 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018.

So far, he has played 149 IPL matches and has scalped 134 wickets at an expensive economy rate of 7.05 an over, with best figures of 5/18. Knowing MS Dhoni's love for spin, Harbhajan is expected to receive ample opportunities to showcase his skills this year.
