Why do Harbhajan Singh move away from IPL 2020
It is not yet clear whether CSK should include a bowler or a batsman in place of this spinner as he already has a lot of depth and quality in bowling. CSK now has three top spinners, including leg-spinner Imran Tahir, left-arm spinner Mitchell Sentner and leg-spinner Piyush Chawla.
Harbhajan said that it was important for him to give time to his family, including wife Geeta and four-year-old daughter Hinaya. He said, ‘I will only say that there are times when the family has to give priority over sports. My focus is on my family right now, but yes my heart will remain with my team in the UAE.
A source associated with Harbhajan said that it would be wrong to combine it with 13 cases of covid-19 in CSK squad including two players.
A friend of Harbhajan told on the condition of confidentiality, ‘This is not about covid-19 cases in Chennai team. But if your wife and children live in India for three months, your mind will wander and you will not be able to fully concentrate on the game. In such a situation, it does not matter whether you get two crores or 20 crores. Money is far behind in the priority list.
