Mumbai: Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has announced his retirement “from all formats of the game” on the Christmas Even on Friday, December 24.

The former India offspinner said via a video message on Twitter that “in many ways, I had already retired”, but due to his commitments with Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, the offie was forced to hold the announcement this far.

“There comes a time in your life when you must take some tough decisions and move ahead. I have been meaning to make this announcement for the last few years, but I was waiting for the right moment to share it with all of you: today, I am retiring from all formats of cricket,” the 41-year-old was quoted as saying in the video by ESPNCricinfo.

“In many ways, I had already retired as a cricketer, but hadn’t been able to make a formal announcement.

“I haven’t been an active cricketer for a while. But I had a commitment to Kolkata Knight Riders, and wanted to spend the (2021) IPL season with them. But during the season itself, I had made up my mind to retire.”

Harbhajan last played for India in March 2016, in a T20 International against the UAE in Dhaka in Asia Cup. He has 417 wickets in 103 Tests while in ODIs, has 269 wickets in the kitty in 236 outings.
