For some time there was such news that Harbhajan Singh would not be able to be a part of this IPL but there was no official announcement on this, but today it has become clear that this star player of the CSK team will not be seen in IPL this time.

Two CSK players and some support staff members were found positive in the Kovid-19 Test, after which Suresh Raina also withdrew from the IPL due to personal reasons. Raina’s controversy was not over yet that Bhajji has also given a big shock to CSK. After Raina, Bhajji will no longer be part of the team, in which case CSK’s difficulties have increased.

Please tell that in the last season Bhajji bowled brilliantly for Chennai and took 16 wickets. At the same time, Bhajji is at number three in terms of the highest wicket in the history of IPL. Lasith Malinga has taken 170 wickets, Amit Mishra has 157 and Bhajji has taken 150 wickets.

Last week, 13 members of the CSK squad had tested positive for the coronavirus. CSK’s training was delayed due to the confirmed COVID-19 results within their camp.

All other teams have started training for the 13th edition of the IPL except CSK. The three-time IPL champions had arrived in the UAE along with defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore on August 21.
