On Sunday (December 4), Harbhajan Singh responded to Virender Sehwag‘s Instagram post.
This happened after Sehwag revealed Team India’s amazing Lahore Test scorecard of 404-0.
Harbhajan Singh responds to Virender Sehwag’s post
Virender Sehwag recalled a game between India and Pakistan a few years ago in Pakistan in which he put up a partnership of more than 400 runs opening the batting with Rahul Dravid. That game ended in a dull draw, with both teams having a field day with the bat on a dull track with little help for the bowlers.
Many would have assumed Sehwag was celebrating his spectacular double-century, but instead he confused fans with a quiz question. The former Indian opening batter challenged his Twitter followers to identify what is common between all 11 members of the Indian team during the relevant match.
“Forget the scorecard, one very interesting thing about this Indian 11. Can you point out? Comment please,” Sehwag captioned the post.
Team India had a score of 404 without a loss of wicket in 76 overs, with Sehwag scoring 248 off 242 and Rahul Dravid remaining unbeaten with 128 off 231 runs. Harbhajan was amused to find himself at No. 11 because he frequently referred to himself as an all-arounder.
“Why me no 11,” Harbhajan replied.
The historic Test’s playing XI member Yuvraj Singh joined the conversation and made a comment.
“Magro jaake,” Yuvraj commented.
Although the legendary Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh went without a wicket in that Test, his direct hit run out of Younis Khan of Pakistan for 199 will always be remembered. It’s worth noting that India lost their opening wicket – Sehwag (254 of 247) – at 410 runs, the second-highest first wicket stand for India in Test cricket and third overall. Pakistan had declared their innings earlier after reaching a massive 679-7 on a flat wicket. The rain-soaked game finished in a tie.
