Harbhajan Singh, Arguably the greatest offie to have come out of our country is loved by many for the moments he provided in his stint with the national team.
He became a household name after his partnership with Anil Kumble in test matches and also earned himself a reputation of a serious limited over bowler over the course of his career.
Currently playing for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, Harbhajan Singh has never shied away from helping the society.
Even in the past, he has always been in the middle of every charity event involving sportsmen and it is understood that he has helped the Indian disabled cricket team recently.
The Indian disabled cricket team is set to tour Afghanistan for a tri-series involving Pakistan. The series is set to commence on the 20th of the next month and it is understood that the former Indian cricketer has come forward to help them.
It is reported that Harbhajan Singh has sponsored for the clothing of the side that is travelling to Afghanistan next month.
The Physically Challenged Cricket Association of India received an invitation to join the hosts and Pakistan for the tri-series which was duly accepted by its secretary Ravi Chauhan.
And it is understood that he approached the veteran bowler who obliged by accepting to sponsor for their clothing for the whole tour.
“We regularly update Harbhajan about the matches our boys play. I asked him if he could sponsor kits and he immediately agreed,” Chauhan said.
“Every will get a pair each of the practice kit, travelling clothes and match colors. We are grateful to Harbhajan for his help. It would have cost us around R3 lakh had we made kits for the tour,” he added.
This is not the first time that the PCCAI was sponsored by a cricketer in recent times.
Back in 2014, India’s limited over skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni sponsored the side that travelled to South Africa to beat them 6-0 a bi-lateral series.
This is a great initiative by the cricketers to help their fellow sportsmen and will go down as a great act in the history of the game.
