One of the most decorated Indian spinners of our time, Harbhajan Singh revealed what might be in store for him in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the future. Harbhajan, while speaking in the middle of the match during his Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) match against Rajasthan Royals, spoke about the possibility of taking on a coaching role after ending his playing career. Speaking to the commentators, he casually said, “Don’t know if I’m going to play any further but enjoy my time at KKR.”

When asked if he would take on a coaching or mentor role in the future, Harbhajan replied:

“Yeah obviously … Cricket has been the biggest thing that has happened to me, I like to serve Indian cricket in whatever way I can. Whether it is coaching or a mentor, I would be more than happy to do the needy and helping the team, “he said.

KKR registered a superb 86 run victory over Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Thursday. KKR along with Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore have qualified for the playoffs this season.

With important games in the pipeline, Harbhajan could be a good choice because of his experience of playing big games before.


In IPL 2021, Harbhajan has only played three games for KKR so far. His non-wicket count has been a concern for sprinter Eoin Morgan, which has kept him out of his favor.

In all, Harbhajan has played 163 IPL matches for various franchises, taking 150 wickets at an average of 26.86 and an economy of 7.07.
