Harbhajan Singh, the Chennai Super Kings off-spinner, has come out and stated that he doesn't have any plans of retiring from the game right now and is enjoying his cricket currently. He has been playing for Chennai Super Kings in the ongoing Indian Premier League season and has done decently well in the limited opportunity he has got under Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Harbhajan Singh is a legend of Indian Cricket with over 400 Test wickets and world cup medals to his name across two formats for the country. His best days may be behind him but that doesn't take away any sheen from his immense contribution for India. He was recently quoted saying to Times Now that, “I don't want to retire now and just to want to continue playing for my fans. Same applies for Yuvraj and Gambhir also,"

Harbhajan started playing for India in 1998 and played regularly for the country under various captains till 2011, and more specifically, till Ravichandran Ashwin came along.

He further talked about his experience of playing for CSK this year and said, “(MS) Dhoni has proved himself in this IPL and answered his critics. In a way, he has earned his place in the team for World Cup. Whoever questioned that CSK was a team of aged players, have their answer. Good to be in another IPL final.”

Harbhajan is very much aware of the recent happenings around the cricketing globe. Talking about the retirement of AB de Villiers from international cricket and Virat Kohli's neck injury, he said, “Kohli will play in England and such minor injuries can't stop him. India can do well in England.”

“AB's retirement is shocking and it came as a shock to me that he retired in the peak of his career" Bhajji concluded saying.
