IPL 2020: Veteran spinner Harbhajan pulls out of tournament – News

The 13th edition of the league will be played in the UAE from September 19 to November 10.

Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has become the latest Chennai Super Kings player to pull out of the Indian Premier League, according to Indian media reports.

Earlier Suresh Raina, Harbhajan’s teammate, returned to India from Dubai before the CSK announced on their official Twitter handle that the left-handed batsman had pulled out of the tournament due to personal reasons.

But unlike Raina, Harbhajan didn’t board the flight to Dubai when the three-time IPL winners arrived here for the 2020 edition of the cash-rich league.

And now it has emerged that the 2011 World Cup winner will not take part at all in the tournament in the UAE due to personal reasons.

According to a report in NDTV, ‘Harbhajan has already conveyed the message to Chennai Super Kings on Friday’.

Harbhajan’s decision has come on a day when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is expected to announce the schedule for the IPL.

The 13th edition of the league will be played in the UAE from September 19 to November 10.

Barring the Chennai Super Kings, the rest of franchises have started their training sessions ahead of the tournament.

The Super Kings are likely to attend their first training session on Friday.
