IPL 2019: 3 Indian cricketing giants that might be playing their last IPL this year
2. Harbhajan Singh
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.
