Former Indian spinner enjoys friendship with a number of former Pakistan cricketers like Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Akhtar
Harbhajan Singh, a former Indian spinner, touched the hearts of many with his kind act towards a Pakistani supporter during the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 final between Australia and India at The Oval.
Harbhajan was spotted signing an autograph for a Pakistani fan at The Oval, and the footage quickly gained popularity on social media platforms, receiving widespread praise from cricket enthusiasts who admired the Indian player's thoughtful gesture.
Harbhajan enjoys friendship with a number of former Pakistan cricketers like Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Akhtar. During the Legends League Cricket earlier this year, Harbhajan was seen having healthy banter with Akhtar.
Akhtar recounted an incident from the Faislabad Test match that took place during India's visit to Pakistan in the 2005-06 season, which he shared in a YouTube video.
"Should I tell what happened in Faisalabad?" Akhtar said.
Harbhajan, who also hit Akhtar for a six during the same match, replied: "No, I did not misbehave. I hit you for a six and you got angry 'How can he hit me like that?'."
However, Akhtar responded by saying: "No. You misbehaved after I hit two sixes off your bowling."
"When he's losing the war of words, he starts using force," Harbhajan responded, as Akhtar jokingly hit him on his tummy.
