Players Who Might Be Playing Their Last IPL This Year

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a twenty-twenty cricket league that happens in India. IPL is the most-attended cricket league in the world. There have been thirteen seasons of the IPL tournament so far with the thirteenth season happening between September to November 2020. The fourteenth season of IPL is soon going to commence from the 9th of April in India and this IPL is special because many of the veteran players that were a part of the previous seasons, might be playing their last IPL this year.

  • Harbhajan Singh

Harbhajan Singh was born on 3 July 1980. He is also known as Harbhajan or simply as Bhajji or Bhajju pa, he is an Indian cricketer who has played all the formats of cricket for India. He is better known for his spin bowling and he has the second-highest number of Test wickets by an off-spinner behind Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan. He was the captain of the Indian Premier League team Mumbai Indians, and Punjab for the 2012-13 Ranji Trophy season.

Harbhajan Singh played his Indian Premier League (IPL) debut against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) while playing for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first season. In the 160 matches he has played so far, Singh scalped 150 wickets, conceding 7.05 runs per over. His best bowling figures are 5 for 18.

Singh made his Test and One Day International (ODI) debut in early 1998. His career was initially affected by investigations into the legality of his bowling action, as well as serval disciplinary incidents. However, in 2001, with leading leg spinner Anil Kumble injured, Harbhajan’s career was resuscitated after Indian captain Sourav Ganguly called for his inclusion in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy team. In that series victory over Australia, Harbhajan established himself as the team’s leading spinner by taking 32 wickets, becoming the first Indian bowler to take a hat-trick in Test cricket.

  • Chris Gayle

Chris Gayle’s full name is Christopher Henry Gayle. He was born on 21 September 1979 in Kingston, Jamaica. He has many nicknames as Universe Boss, Gayle force, Gayle storm. Gayle started his cricket career with Lucia’s cricket club in Kingston Jamaica. He mostly uses his left hand for batting but Chris Gayle is batting all-rounder. His test was on 16 March 2000 with Zimbabwe and One Day International (ODI) debut with India.

‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle is the favorite player of the masses. There is no better entertainer than Gayle both on and off the field. After conquering the Bangalore crowds for RCB, Gayle made a quiet move to Kings XI Punjab in 2018 and made an instant impact with another strong season that included a century against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Gayle-Rahul opening combination is one of the most lethal in the tournament and the bowling sides have often struggled to contain the two as the left-right pair goes about their demolition job.

Gayle had a fine season in 2019 where he was on the verge of getting his 7th IPL century but remained unbeaten on 99. He struck 4 half-centuries and scored a total of 490 runs from 319 balls that he faced. Could IPL 2021 be his last season in IPL?
