Will Harbhajan Singh Too Withdraw From IPL 2020? Find Out

Dubai: After Suresh Raina, the speculation is rife that cricketer Harbhajan Singh is also planning to quit the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year.
The situation is going to be difficult for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as the team members including two players Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad who have been tested positive for COVID-19.
The mandatory six-day quarantine was extended up to 14 days after 13 members tested positive. The other IPL teams have started preparations for the tournament in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), but the CSK team members are still in isolation.
According to reports, veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is worried after the surge in COVID-19 cases in the CSK team and has been contemplating not to play in the Season XIII of IPL.
Last week, Suresh Raina decided to pull off out of the competition by citing personal reasons, a huge setback to the team.
A top CSK official recently opened up on the 40-year-old’s absence so far from the CSK setup. “He was to join the team on 1st September but he has again deferred his arrival. We don’t know when he’s coming or whether he’s coming at all as he has not updated us (management) on his decision… Him pulling out of IPL is all speculation at the moment,” the official was quoted as saying by Times Now.
Harbhajan Singh had also missed the pre-season camp which was held earlier from August 15 to 20.
The thirteenth season of IPL 2020 is scheduled to be entirely held in UAE due to the surge in the cases of coronavirus in India. The tournament will be played across three formats in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. IPL is scheduled to start on September 19 while the final match will be held on November 10.
This season, the IPL will be played behind closed doors and the players will be kept under biosecure bubbles for three months after almost every team reached UAE for the tournament. After the players and members of the CSK team tested positive for COVID-19, the players have been directed to strictly remain in their team bubbles.
