Harbhajan Singh pulls out of IPL 2020 due to personal reasons
Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has pulled out of this year's Indian Premier League (IPL) due to personal reasons.
"Dear Friends, I will not be playing IPL this year due to personal reasons. These are difficult times and I would expect some privacy as I spend time with my family. @ChennaiIPLCSK management has been extremely supportive and I wish them a great IPL Stay safe and Jai Hind," Harbhajan said in a tweet.
The 40-year-old spinner has been a part of the CSK over the past two years. Harbhajan is one of the most successful bowlers in the history of IPL with 150 wickets. Earlier, CSK all-rounder Suresh Raina had also opted out citing personal reasons.
The IPL starts on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
