Soon after news erupted regarding BCCI denying NOC (No Objection Certificate) to Harbhajan Singh for playing in the Hundred league, the spinner came into action. He immediately informed the board and the fans that he will withdraw his name from the players draft of the Hundred league.
Harbhajan decision to play Hundred in England hinted his retirement from International Cricket, but the veteran put an end to all the speculations and confirmed that he is not going to retire soon and will be the part of Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020.
“For me, Indian Premier League and Chennai Super Kings remain priorities. I have had two good seasons with CSK where we played two finals. So right now, a good third season is what I am looking at,” Harbhajan Singh was quoted as saying by First Post.
“I respect rules laid down by my parent body. I will never flout any BCCI rule. If that means withdrawing my name from the draft, so be it. I will withdraw my name.”
“I don’t want to break any rules but I find the concept interesting. As and when, the rules allow me to play, I would definitely like to be a part of it,” he further added.
Harbhajan Singh is currently busy doing commentary for the ongoing test series between India and South Africa.
