Seattle has signed a three-year deal with Thunderbolt
Left-arm spinner Harmeet has decided to retire with the intention of pursuing a cricket career in the US. He has signed a three-year deal with the Seattle Thunderbolt team of the Major Cricket League of America. Harpreet believes that the possibilities are over for him in Indian cricket. “I retired in July because I was not getting opportunities to play for Mumbai which is my home team. I am getting good money for playing cricket in America. Which is giving me a sense of security. The standard of cricket there is also good.
sorry to go to america
Harmeet also hopes to play national cricket for the US. Regarding this, he said, if you stay in America for 30 consecutive months, then you can play for the national team. I have been here for 12 months and have 18 months left. By the beginning of 2023, I will qualify to play for the US national team. Then I will be 30 years old and for a spinner this period is the best.
Not enough chances from Mumbai side
Harmeet Singh believes that he made his debut for Mumbai in the year 2009 but did not get enough chances to prove himself. For this reason, today he had to decide to go to America. He feels that he was not even given a full season to prove himself in his career. Till the year 2017, I was waiting for an opportunity to play for Mumbai. In a career spanning over a decade, I could play only 9 matches. I didn’t even get a chance to fail. I didn’t get a chance to prove myself. Will regret this.
