Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh is known for his sense of humour and former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar got a taste of it on Thursday. It all started when Akhtar took to Twitter to post an adorable picture of himself with his second son. Akhtar was blessed with another son in July this year. The legendary cricketer, who had tied the knot in 2014, first became father in 2016.
Want to be a professional cricketer?
Akhtar retired from the game after the 2011 World Cup. He will go down in history as one of the fastest bowlers to have graced the game. Akhtar, in fact, still holds the record for bowling the fastest delivery in the game. He played 46 Tests and 163 ODIs for Pakistan, taking 178 and 247 wickets respectively in the two formats.
Coming to his latest tweet, he posted a very adorable tweet and asked his fans and mates to pray for his son. And while everyone did it, Harbhajan Singh hilariously trolled him. The India legend congratulated Akhtar for becoming father as well as blessed the kid before taking a cheeky dig at the Pakistani legend.
Harbhajan Singh hilariously mentioned that Akhtar’s speed has not decrease yet, writing:
“God bless him❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️..congratulations @shoaib100mph speed kam nahi hui brother.. ??
