Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and former Pakistan pace spearhead Shoaib Akhtar were the fiercest of rivals on a cricket field. The sight of both the players having a go at each other during the 2010 Asia Cup is still fresh in every cricket fan’s mind.

But off the field both the players share a cordial relationship. Time and again, Akhtar has said how he is good friends with the Indian players especially Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh and last year during an interview Harbhajan had also said how the speedster shared light moment with him and other Indian players.

Well, Harbhajan’s latest tweet has once again shown how close the players as he trolled the former Pakistan star. It all began when Akhtar shared a photo of himself wearing welding helmet and gloves with a caption from “Dwavne (Dwayne) ‘The Rock’ Johnson” and captioned it:

“Only hard work can lead you to your dreams.”

But Harbhajan ignored all the motivational words and only concentrated on Akhtar’s attire as he tweeted: “Mainu lagya X-ray karn chalya ? chasme te gloves ? wali ok report.. haye mera dangra da doctor veera?❤️ shugal mela Shoaib bro? (I thought you were going for x-ray. The report of gloves and helmet is ok. Oh my dear doctor of animals, my sweet Shoaib bro.) “

Earlier in the day, Yuvraj had also trolled Akhtar for the same tweet, writing: “Oh ta theek hai payan tusi welding karan kithe chale ho (That’s all right but where are you going for welding).”


An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
