The ‘wide controversy’ during the match between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore might have raised a number of eyebrows but veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh has seen the funny side of it.
CSK skipper MS Dhoni has been facing the heat from several quarters for his behaviour during the incident. The incident took place in the 19th over of SRH’s chase when the match was finely poised. After collecting 19 runs from the 18th over, SRH had scored three from the first ball of the 19th over when they needed 27 runs from the last two overs.
The first ball of the over was hit for a two by Rashid Khan before Shardul Thakur bowled a wide. The following delivery looked like a wide too but Reiffel did not call it. At first, it looked like he would call it a wide as he had his hands half out. However, he changed his mind at the last moment after seeing an angry MS Dhoni protesting and decided against calling it a wide.
And while MS Dhoni is facing widespread criticism for his behaviour during the incident, Harbhajan Singh has reacted to it in a funny manner. The CSK star, who has pulled out of the ongoing tournament due to personal reasons, reacted to a clip of Reiffel changing his mind over the call with a series of laughing emojis.
Interestingly, the video was posted in SRH allrounder Abdul Samad’s tweet in which he had posted a picture of Dhoni talking to him as well as other SRH youngsters. Samad had captioned the picture by writing “Life lessons”.
In reply, a fan took a dig at Dhoni by posting the clip and Harbhajan Singh could not contain his laughter as he shared the tweet.
Here is the tweet from Harbhajan Singh:
