Harbhajan Singh finds support in former teammates, fans
His tweet received over 6500 likes, 55 retweets and counting. Former India fast bowler Irfan Pathan also came out in support of him and commented “true that paji”. However, a lot of people were not happy with him extending supporting to a Pakistan player, and cited example of the attack on Gurduwara in Afghanistan.
Some fans were also of the opinion that, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh, should stop supporting the Pakistan fans.
Yuvraj Singh had also tweeted video supporting the work that Afridi’s charity foundation is doing in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Following which, he drew a lot of flak from the fans.
