Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina, veteran cricketers and World Cup winners, congratulated Anurag Thakur on his new post as Sports Minister.
Anurag Thakur, who was promoted to the Union Cabinet on Wednesday, has been assigned the responsibility of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, as well as the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports.
Harbhajan Singh, a renowned off-spinner, took to Twitter to describe Anurag Thakur a ‘young’, ‘dynamic’ guy who is very ‘passionate’ about sports and has a lot of expertise in sports administration. ‘Bhajji’ further stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi could not have chosen a better sports minister for India.
Suresh Raina, Harbhajan’s former Team India and CSK teammate, described Anurag Thakur as “energetic,” adding that the latter had extensive expertise in sports administration. The experienced middle-order batsman concluded that Anurag Thakur is the “perfect” candidate to oversee Indian sports.
Anurag Thakur will take over as Union Sports Minister from Kiren Rijiju. Meanwhile, Rijiju has been appointed as the Law Minister.

Anurag Thakur previously served as BCCI president from May 2016 until February 2017.
