Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who has played in the IPL for different franchises such as the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, will make his debut for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad tonight.

Harbhajan has been handed his Knight Rider cap by the skipper Eoin Morgan and he will rely on him to bring all his experience of playing in the league since its inauguration in 2008.

Harbhajan Singh was bought by the Knight Riders in the auction held earlier this year. He was picked at his base price of Rs 2 crore after the Super Kings had released him before the auction.

The entry to Knight Riders camp and the game against the Sunrisers will be a comeback for the experienced off-spinner as he had pulled out of the last season of the league held in the UAE citing family issues.

He has played 160 matches across 12 seasons of the IPL and has taken 150 wickets with an average of 26.44 runs per wicket and an economy rate of 7.05 runs per over. His last season with the CSK in 2019 was fruitful as he picked 16 wickets at 19.5 apiece and an economy rate of 7.09 runs per over.
