Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh sold an apartment in Mumbai for INR 17.58 crore. The same was confirmed by documents accessed by Zapkey which reveal the buyer of the property to be JBC International LLP with the sale deed registered on November 18, 2021. The apartment has a carpet area of 2,830 sq ft and is on the ninth floor of the Rustomjee Elements situated in Andheri West.

It is further being reported that the Indian cricketer paid a stamp duty of ₹87.90 lakh on the transaction. The off-spinner had purchased the property in December 2017 from Rustomjee, having registered it in March next year for INR 14.5 crore.

With Bhajji playing very little competitive cricket over the last few years, he has taken to cricket commentary and can also be seen as an expert on various television channel networks.

Weighing in on India's upcoming Test series against New Zealand, Harbhajan said that Ajinkya Rahane should start scoring big runs quickly as there are a lot of players waiting in the queue.

We were wondering whether Rahane will be in the team or not: Harbhajan

"There's no Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma has opted to rest himself. Then there's Ajinkya Rahane; we were wondering whether he'll be in the team or not. But he has been handed the captaincy (for the first Test)," Harbhajan said while reviewing the first Test in a video on Sportskeeda.

"His last 11 matches haven't gone too well as he is averaging just 19 (19.58). He is a brilliant cricketer but his performance hasn't quite backed him. But it's also good to see the thinking of Rohit, Virat, and Rahul Dravid as they believe that Rahane should be in the team," he added.

"The England Tour went very well for the team and then the final Test match did not happen. After that, a lot of T20 cricket was played, be it IPL [2021] or the T20 World Cup. So, this is kind of a new season because this is the first Test match we are playing at home (after a long time)," the 41-year-old said.

The first test of the two-match series is set to commence on November 25 at the Green Park Stadium, Kanpur.
