Harbhajan Singh has pulled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 due to personal reasons. Harbhajan Singh conveyed his decision to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Friday. He became the second CSK player after Suresh Raina to withdraw his name from this year’s IPL, citing personal reasons.
The development comes on the back of some positive news for the CSK. The CSK team that flew from India to UAE, Harbhajan wasn’t a part of that group and was expected to fly later. Earlier, he was also not a part of the camp that was organised in Chennai.
It was expected that the opening encounter of the tournament could be held between champions Mumbai Indians and 2019 runners up Chennai Super Kings.
However, things went haywire with 13 members of the CSK camp, including two players, turned positive for COVID-19. There was speculation that CSK might not play the opener, although CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan said the team would be ready to play the opener if required.
