According to networthbro.com, Harbhajan Singh's net worth is estimated to be around INR 63 crore. This comprises his total earnings from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as an Indian cricket player from 1998-2015. It also includes all the spinner's earnings from his endorsement deals with popular brands like Pepsi, Royal Stag and Reebok. As a part of the cash-rich IPL since its inception in 2008, the star cricketer has also made around INR 58.14 crore just from his participation in the tournament. The Harbhajan Singh house in Jalandhar is currently valued at INR 6 Crore according to caknowledge.com
Having been brought by the Mumbai Indians in the inaugural edition of the IPL, Harbhajan Singh became a permanent figure in the MI camp from 2008 to 2017. His salary with the 5-time champions was initially set at a considerable ₹3.40 crores in his first three years. At his highest - from 2011-2013 - Bhajji earned a whopping ₹5.98 crores from the Mumbai Indians side. As his form waned, his compensation was reduced to a still massive ₹5.5 crores for his last four years in the team.
Singh's long association with MI came to an end in 2017, when he was picked up by the Chennai Super Kings for the 2018 season. The Harbhajan Singh IPL salary took a huge dip in this era, falling to a modest ₹2 crores as he played with CSK in 2018 and 2019. Bhajji was dropped from the team's roster after skipping the 2020 season for personal reasons and played the 2021 season of the tournament with the Kolkata Knight Riders. He was brought for ₹2 crores.
