Harbhajan responded to the light-hearted tweet with a dig at Shoaib. Harbhajan replied, “When you have 400 plus Test wickets, I am sure you know more about cricket than someone with less than 200 wickets.”

The tweet garnered over 8,900 likes and over 350 retweets as many Pakistani cricket fans were not impressed with the post as Harbhajan had recently taken a dig at Pakistan ahead of the all-important encounter. Harbhajan had said that Pakistan should give India a walk-over in the high-octane clash as they will not be able to defeat them.
The two arch-rivals will go head to head in Dubai on 24 October in their first match of the 2021 T20 World Cup. Both teams will be determined to begin their campaign on a high note and win the highly-contested encounter.
