The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) promises to bring a lot of excitement to the table. It surely will treat and delight the fans with some great shows and thorough entertainment. All the teams will be eager to take the title home and might have already begun strategizing their plans.
However, this season could also leave the fans with scenes they would never want to witness. It might hurt them more than any other IPL season ever did as some of their favourite cricketers from around the globe might not play next year. These cricketers have reached the twilight of their careers and expecting for them to continue for one more season after this will only be over exaggeration.
Here are five such cricketers who could be playing their last IPL:
5. Harbhajan Singh
It sprung up quite a surprise when the Chennai Super Kings decided to retain Harbhajan Singh for the upcoming season. The Turbunator doesn’t spin batsmen around his web as much as he used to do earlier. He has lost the kind of skill he used to possess with the ball a few years ago.
Hence, this forced Mumbai Indians to end their 10-year association with him. Since 2016, Bhajji has picked only 24 wickets in 38 matches which is disappointing. He conceded runs at an economy rate of close to 8 in these three seasons. He bowled the least number of overs in his entire IPL career while playing in 2018 (min. 10 matches). With Mitchell Santner available this season, Harbhajan might have his opportunities limited in what could be turn about to be his last season.
