Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise led by MS Dhoni is one of the most successful teams in the IPL. During the IPL 2020 auction, the CSK bought Piyush Chawla with a strong bid of Rs.6.5 crore.

The franchise is certain that the veteran spinner can improve stability to their side with Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir already in the setup. Piyush Chawla alleged that he was glad after CSK acquired him.

Former Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinner, said that MS Dhoni enjoys playing around with the spinners in his team. He further added that he will acquire a lot from Harbhajan Singh and also went on to praised the Imran Tahir for his energetic approach on the field even in his 40s.

“Obviously first reaction was I was quite happy. As you are talking about a lot of spinners but we all know how Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) plays around with the spinners. So that will be really good for me and for the team. It is also very important to have healthy competition in the team,” Piyush Chawla was quoted as saying to cricket.com.

“The good part is when I go there, I will get to learn lot of things from Bhajju Pa (Harbhajan Singh). We all know Imran Tahir, what kind of a bowler he is and his energy level even at this age. So, it will be fantastic to play with these guys,”
he further added.

Harbhajan Singh was at one time the leading spinner for India in Tests as well as the ODIs. He played his last international game back in 2016.

The 40-year-old has also been associated with two of the most successful franchises in the Indian Premier League i.e., Mumbai Indians and now Chennai Super Kings.

Harbhajan has played 160 matches in the IPL, taking 150 wickets at an average of 26.44. His best bowling figure is 5/18 so far.
