Harbhajan Singh’s career, who took 711 wickets in 18 years from 1998 to 2016, was full of ups and downs. Harbhajan Singh, who played alongside the game’s all-time greats, said goodbye to every format of cricket on Friday afternoon. Harbhajan Singh, who was once scolded for his action, was later given a different identity by the action itself. Children in India used to imitate him. Once Rohit Sharma was also seen bowling in his style.
This year the English team toured India. Indian bowlers were longing for wickets on the second day of the first Test played in Chennai. Then captain Kohli tried something new. The ball is handed to Rohit Sharma. Hitman then copied the bowling action of his old Mumbai Indians teammate Harbhajan Singh.
Then this video of Rohit became fiercely viral on social media. People liked it a lot. Rohit gave seven runs in the bowling of two overs. However, even Bhajji’s action could not get him any wicket. Harbhajan also had fun with Rohit Sharma by tweeting.
Harbhajan regrets this
When Bhajji was in great form in 2015-16, he did not find a place in the national team, but he does not regret anything. Harbhajan said, ‘There are two perspectives to look at anything. If I see myself as a boy from a small town of Jalandhar I had absolutely no idea about where I started and the success I got. I can only thank God. I am very grateful for cricket.
Such was the career of Harbhajan
The 41-year-old played 103 Tests, 236 ODIs and 28 T20Is. In these matches, he took 417, 269 and 25 wickets. In terms of total wickets, he is the second player to take 707 international wickets for India after Anil Kumble’s 953 wickets. He also contributed for the team with the bat, scoring 3,569 runs with two centuries and nine half-centuries. Harbhajan became the first Indian to take a hat-trick in Test cricket against Australia at the Eden Gardens in 2001.
