Former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who recently announced his retirement from international cricket, has given a big statement. He has indirectly targeted former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the team selectors, saying that no one supported him after 2012, while he played an important role in India’s 2011 World Cup title victory. Be a player. Apart from this, Bhajji also told how Sourav Ganguly supported him.

Let us tell you that after the 2011 World Cup, Harbhajan Singh did not get a chance to play continuously. In such a situation, now the 41-year-old former veteran bowler said that if he was fed continuously, he could have taken 500-550 wickets in Tests.

While talking to Dainik Jagran, Bhajji said, “As long as there is support, it feels great. However, I would say that if I had the support at the right time, I would have taken 500-550 wickets much earlier, because when I was 31, I had taken 400 wickets and if I had played for three-four more years, I would have taken more wickets. Would have got 500-550 wickets.”

He added, “But, all this did not happen. There are many reasons for that. If we go into that, a lot of things will come out, which I don’t want to do.”

Turbanator said, “There comes a time when you should give players the respect they deserve. I would like to say that the support that Sourav Ganguly gave to me after 2001-02 was tremendous, but after 2012 there was no such support.”

Bhajji announced his retirement from international cricket on Friday. The legendary right-arm spinner took 417 wickets in 103 Tests, 269 in 236 ODIs and 25 wickets in 28 T20Is for India. Apart from this, Bhajji has taken 150 wickets in 163 IPL matches.
