T20 World Cup: Harbhajan Singh trolls Shoaib Akhtar as duo engage in friendly banter ahead of India vs Pakistan clash

In the build-up to the India vs Pakistan clash at the T20 World Cup, Harbhajan Singh has brutally trolled Shoaib Akhtar in friendly banter on social media. The cricket legends are part of the analyst team for the T20 World Cup and the mind games have already begun way before the match.

Shoaib Akhtar took a jibe at India’s former spinner, Harbhajan Singh, sharing a picture of them engaged in conversation during an event in the UAE. Shoaib Akhtar tweeted, “With Mr. I know it all @harbhajan_singh in Dubai for a pre-discussion about the mother of all competitions. ”

That invoked quite a response from Harbhajan Singh, who curtly hit back at the Pakistan fast bowler. In an apt response, the Turbanator tweeted, “When u have 400 plus test wickets am sure you know more about cricket then someone with less than 200 wickets (sic).”

Shoaib Akhtar’s friendly banter with Harbhajan Singh comes days after he was seen chilling with former Indian cricketers Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar, with Zaheer Abbas also in attendance. The Rawalpindi Express, shared images of their interaction, where he could be seen giving shoulder massages to Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev. hoaib Akhtar tweeted, “Chilling with the best of the best. The great Zaheer Abbas, Sunil Gavaskar & Kapil Dev. All set for the cricket ka maha muqabla.”

India will be overwhelming favourites for the clash in Dubai, when they face off against Pakistan on October 24. The Men in Blue have never lost to their arch-rivals in the T20 World Cup, winning on all previous occasions against Pakistan. Virat Kohli and Co. will hope that the record continues again, while his rival captain Babar Azam will hope to break the streak when his team takes the field.
