One of the greatest Indian crickets, Harbhajan Singh announced his retirement from the sport on Friday.

In a tweet, Bhajji wrote: "All good things come to an end and today as I bid adieu to the game that has given me everything in life, I would like to thank everyone who made this 23-year-long journey beautiful and memorable.

Harbhajan last featured for India in a T20I against UAE back in 2016 and has since only been limited to domestic cricket. He continued to play in the Indian Premier League, representing franchises like Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders during this period.

Bhajji calls it a day after some of the finest records to his name in Indian cricket. In Test cricket, he has 417 wickets to his name in just 103 matches.

In ODIs, Bhajji has represented India in 236 matches, picking up 227 wickets.

In the shortest format of the game, the Turbanator played for India in 28 matches and claimed 25 wickets. In the IPL, Harbhajan has played 163 matches across 13 seasons. The 2020 edition was the only one he did not feature in. In total, he has taken 150 wickets at an average of 26 and his best figures being 5/18.
