Indian cricket legend Harbhajan Singh is all set to feature in the upcoming season of the Abu Dhabi T10 League as the former spinner has signed for Delhi Bulls. The team will be captained by Harbhajan’s ex-Chennai Super Kings (CSK) teammate, Dwayne Bravo.
Harbhajan, who debuted in the international arena back in 1998, has won the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup with India in an illustrious career that has spanned over two decades. Bhajji has taken 711 wickets in his international career.

“This is a very interesting and new challenge for the bowler in me, and I am delighted to be playing for the Delhi Bulls in the Abu Dhabi T10 this year. It won’t be easy for the bowlers, but I hope to make my mark here and help my team win its first title in the tournament. I have had wonderful interactions with the team owner – Neelesh Bhatnagar, who’s a dear friend, and I am impressed by his commitment towards this team for the last five years,” said Harbhajan, as quoted by Zee News.
