IPL 2019 has been fabulous so far for Harbhajan Singh. It was thought that his days are gone but he proved everyone wrong. He has been impressive for Chennai Super Kings this season after picking up 7 wickets in 4 matches and at an extraordinary economy of just 5.12. MS Dhoni has used him wisely to pick wickets of opposition on slow MA Chidambaram Stadium. But there is some bad news for CSK.
Harbhajan has got a neck injury and is not against KKR on their home ground today. It has been reported that Harbhajan also has to attend some family issues. Harbhajan singh said that while he was recovering from his neck injury, both his wife and daughter fell ill and he had to take the decision to not travel to Kolkata. He is taking care of wife and daughter till they get recovered.
Harbhajan singh said
“I was supposed to play in Jaipur against Rajasthan Royals but in the morning of the game, I had severe neck pain and had to pull out. Both my wife and daughter are not keeping well. I am in Mumbai taking care of my family. Once they get well, I will join the team back.”
Harbhajan singh has been in a phenomenal form for CSK this season as he has picked up two man-of-the-match awards in just 4 games. His performance is one of the main reasons that CSK is at top of the IPL table with 6 wins from 7 matches. He and South African spinner Imran Tahir has been very impressive in taking wickets for CSK. If all goes well, Harbhajan is likely to join the team for their ninth game against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 17 or for the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 21.
