Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has rubbished reports that he is set to join politics ahead of the upcoming Punjab Assembly polls.
There were rumours on Thursday morning that Harbhajan was going to join the Indian National Congress (INC) and would contest the upcoming elections in Punjab.
This led to the 36-year-old clarifying on Twitter that he had “no intentions of joining politics any time soon”, while pleading for people to stop spreading such rumours.
Harbhajan is one of India’s most successful bowlers, having picked up 417 Test wickets in 103 matches. He was also part of the Indian sides that won the ICC World T20 in 2007 and the ICC World Cup in 2011.
The Punjab off-spinner hasn’t featured in an international game since the T20 Asia Cup earlier this year.
