Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh shared a viral video that has popped up on social media. A non-striker is seen visibly disappointed after being run out and he throws the bat which hits his teammate at the other end by mistake.
Harbhajan posted the video on his Instagram account with the caption: “Don’t ever throw your bat after getting out.” The events that transpired in the video were funny and unfortunate at the same time.
The striker hits the delivery down to mid-off who is inside the circle. The batsmen are indecisive about running and both of them are stranded in the middle of the pitch. The throw is fired in at the non-striker’s end and it uproots the stumps.
The dejected batsman starts walking off but throws his bat without any control in sheer disappointment. It goes and bumps into the throat of his teammate at the striker’s end. He immediately goes to apologize, clearly acknowledging that it was a mistake.

Harbhajan Singh’s thoughts on his debut film ‘Friendship’
Harbhajan Singh is currently participating in the IPL 2021 for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He recently stepped out into a new venture – acting. The wily off-spinner had accepted an offer to play a role in a Tamil movie called ‘Friendship’. He spoke about the similarities between cricket and acting and how he isn’t shy to stand in front of a camera anymore.
“If I make a mistake while acting, I have a second chance to rectify it. You know how it is with cricket though. Every game brings with it a different, unexpected hurdle. So, it felt nice to be in front of the camera. Of course, there was the pressure to get the scene right, but the stress of cricket remains unparalleled.”
“I was a bit nervous and had to deliver a dialogue for the very first time. It took a while to get used to the lighting and the atmosphere of a shooting spot. I remember that it was for a commercial, and took longer to execute the shot than we had expected. However, I am not shy about the camera anymore; I have done it all my life,” he said.
The 41-year-old also revealed that he’s open to accepting more offers in the future but as of now, is keen to play for KKR in the IPL 2021.
