Harbhajan Singh may not be the selector’s top choice for playing 11 anymore, but the cricketer is still considered among the best spinners to have ever represented Team India. On the occasion of Gurpurab, the 39-year old cricketer took to Instagram to wish his followers the same. Harbhajan posted heart-warming wishes to his fans and greeting them with “Happy Gurpurab 2019” in the end.
Along with Harbhajan Singh, retired Indian batsmen Gautam Gambhir and VVS Laxman also took to social media to commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak. The Indian cricketer has been very active on social media as he always takes time to wish the countrymen on festive occasions.
Harbhajan Singh last represented Team India in a T20I against UAE more than three years ago. The 103-Test veteran has picked up 417 wickets in the longest format and is third on the list of Indian bowlers after Anil Kumble and former World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev. The off-spinner has also played 236 ODIs and was part of the 2011 World Cup-winning team under MS Dhoni. In his 236 ODI and 28 T20I appearances, the cricketer has picked up 269 and 25 wickets in both formats respectively.
