When asked whether he will be interested in coaching, Harbhajan replied, “Yeah, obviously. Cricket has been the biggest thing that happened to me, would like to serve Indian cricket in whatever way I can. 

“Whether it’s coaching or mentor, I’d be more than happy to do the needful and help the team,” he said.

Harbhajan has played 163 matches in IPL, picking up 150 wickets at an average of 26.86. He also has a decent economy of only 7.07 after featuring in 13 seasons.
