Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has wished Sreesanth luck after the latter announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on March 9 (Wednesday). The celebrated fast bowler took to Twitter to reveal his decision.

The 39-year-old Sreesanth has epresented India in 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20Is between 2005 and 2011, picking up 169 international wickets. He was part of the T20 World Cup-winning team under MS Dhoni in 2007 and the 50-over World Cup-winning side in 2011.

He called time on his career that last for almost two decades. Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh was among the first few cricketers to wish the cricketer on a successful career. Taking to Twitter, the off-spinner wrote:

“Good luck Shenta.”

Meanwhile, Sreesanth and Harbhajan Singh didn’t shared a very cordial relationship in the past. The two cricketers were involved in a ‘Slapgate’ inside during IPL 2008. Harbhajan slapped the Kerala fast bowler after the game. The cricketer from Punjab was penalised for his action with a 11-game ban.

Meanwhile, in a series of tweets, the veteran cricketer put curtains on his international career. He wrote:

“It has been an honor to represent my family, my teammates and the people of India. Nd everyone who loves the game . With much sadness but without regret, I say this with a heavy heart: I am retiring from the Indian domestic (first class and all formats )cricket.”

Sreesanth returned to first-class cricket last month after BCCI lifted his lifetime ban in 2020. He played a game against Mizoram and picked up two wickets before missing the last two matches due to an injury.
