Ahead of the sixth season of the Abu Dhabi T10 league, Delhi Bulls acquired the legendary off-spinner Harbhajan Singh's services and roped him into their squad, making their bowling lineup even stronger and volatile. On the other hand, defending champions Deccan Gladiators have signed up former India all-rounder Suresh Raina for the tournament.
In a career spanning more than two decades, Harbhajan, who made his debut appearance in 1998, has lifted the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup with India. Harbhajan, often known as Bhajji, won the IPL three times and accumulated 711 wickets in his illustrious career. Raina, on the other hand, announced his retirement recently and said that he’d be participating in league cricket.
Raina is currently playing for the India Legends at the Road Safety World Series 2022, where the team is led by the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. Whereas, Harbhajan Singh is a part of the second season of the Legends League Cricket, where he is leading the Manipal Tigers. The two Indian superstars will next be seen at the ADT10 League which commences on November 23, 2022 at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket stadium.
“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 it's 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 5 years,” said Harbhajan ahead of his maiden T10 tournament.
"It's great for the Abu Dhabi T10 that a player like Harbhajan Singh has joined the league for the 6th season. With such a strong pool of world-class players present in the competition, the tournament promises to be one of the biggest events in the international cricket calendar," said Shaji Ul Mulk, Chairman, T10 Sports Management.
