Former Pakistan spearhead Shoaib Akhtar recalled a funny incident from the past with former India spinner Harbhajan Singh during the ongoing Legends League Cricket in Doha.
In a video posted on his Youtube channel, Akhtar and Harbhajan enjoy a hilarious moment as they look back at times when playing for their countries.
Sharing an incident from the Faisalabad Test during India’s tour of Pakistan in the 2005-06 season, the Pakistan legend revealed the spinner’s reaction after he was hit for two massive sixes during the first innings of the game.
“He was bowling so good in Faisalabad, then I hit him for two sixes!”
To which, Harbhajan replied, “I didn’t say anything to you when you hit those two sixes. But when I hit a six against you, you said so many things!”
“Should I tell everyone what you said? The Indian spinner’s answer to Akhtar’s retort, “You actually began it,” was frank: “I didn’t start. How can he hit a six against me? He just got mad!
Akhtar then jokingly hit Harbhajan, to which Akhtar responded, “When he can’t win with words, he starts hitting others.”
