Harbhajan in new role

Harbhajan Singh was supposed to play for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) slated to be held on September 10 in the UAE. But this time he will not be seen with the ball in the field. The offspinner has withdrawn himself due to coronavirus fear. Even if he doesn't play in IPL, Harbhajan will be seen in a new role this time. The veteran spinner will work as a commentator.

Chennai had already retained Harbhajan for this season. But he withdrew himself from the most popular domestic tournament due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

According to the cricket website Inside Sports, IPL broadcaster Star India will broadcast the tournament in multiple languages.

Star India has hired a total of 90 commentators for this work. Some of them will be broadcast live from the UAE. The rest of the commentators will do the commentary work from Mumbai Studios.

Star India has already signed an agreement with Harbhajan on September 4. However, no official announcement has been made by any party yet.

According to Indian media, Harbhajan will join the Hindi commentary panel with former cricketers Akash Chopra and Ajit Agarkar.
