Actor Geeta Basra shared a heart-touching note on social media Friday as her husband Harbhajan Singh announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. “I know how long you waited for this moment,” Basra, who has been married to the ace spinner since 2015, wrote expressing pride in Singh and wishing him the best for his “doosra chapter” ahead.

Basra’s Instagram post accompanied pictures of the duo, including memories both on and off the pitch. Basra and Singh are parents to two, a daughter and a son.

“Congratulations on an amazing career Bhaj..not many can boast of playing for 23 years!!! I’m so fortunate to have been a part of your journey through all the ups and downs n thankful that Hinaya got to see her Papa play (we were your loudest fans in the stadium),” Basra wrote in her note.

In a statement earlier today, Singh at the age of 41 bade farewell to the game, having made his cricketing debut in the late 1990s. A Padma Shri awardee, Singh notably holds the position of the first Indian bowler to have claimed a test hattrick and is India’s fourth-highest wicket-taker.

“All good things come to an end and today as I bid adieu to the game that has given me everything in life,” Singh said in a parting note following a two-decade career. “My journey from the streets of Jalandhar to become the Turnabator for Team India has been a beautiful one,” he added in a video statement.

He said he had been waiting some years to make the official announcement of his retirement, adding “in many ways” he had already retired from cricket. “I haven’t been an active cricketer for a while. But I had a commitment to Kolkata Knight Riders and wanted to spend the IPL season with them. But during the season itself, I had made up my mind to retire,” he explained.
