Indian cricket: Harbhajan Singh announces retirement from cricket


Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Friday.

“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 said in a tweet.
