417 Test wickets. 269 ODI wickets. 134 IPL wickets. Harbhajan Singh is a legend, a match-winner and a superstar. A cunning off-spinner and a gutsy fighter on the field, Harbhajan Singh is always keen to learn a trick or two to keep adding to the agony for batsmen the world over.
Now about some new lessons off the field? Days before Chennai Super Kings’ IPL 2019 opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Harbhajan Singh was spotted picking up some cooking tips from CSK coach Stephen Fleming and guess what – Harbhajan looked like a pro whipping some tasty dishes.
CSK stars like Ravindra Jadeja, Shane Watson and Sam Billings were present and one would guess they got to taste Harbhahan Singh’s dish.
A Mumbai Indians mainstay from 2008 to 2017, Harbhajan Singh moved to Chennai Super Kings in 2018. He shares a special bond with MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina – the three were members of India’s 2011 World Cup-winning squad and several other important conquests on the cricket field.
Harbhajan Singh has picked 134 wickets in 149 IPL matches – 127 of those wickets came for Mumbai Indians where he won three IPL titles. He won the IPL in his first year with the Super Kings in 2018.
In 2001, Harbhajan Singh became the first Indian to bag a hat-trick in Test cricket . With 417 wickets under his belt, Harbhajan is considered to be one of the greatest match-winners for India in the format. He has also played pivotal roles for India in ODIs and T20Is.
Chennai Super Kings are the most successful side in IPL history in terms of win percentage. Like Mumbai Indians, CSK have won the IPL three times and will be gunning for a record fourth title when the tournament starts on Saturday.
