Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has revealed the good times he used to spend with Pakistani cricketers. While the cricket fans share heated arguments among them following Pak vs Ind encounters, the cricketers have always shared friendly relations with each other off the cricket field.
Explaining his narrative, Harbhajan said that their friendship was not only limited to good relations, but there was exchanging of gifts as well. Talking to the media ahead of Asia Cup 2022, the former cricketer said Pakistan's Shahid Afridi used to bring him plenty of presents, including Pakistan's famous Peshawari Slippers and Dramas Compact Discs.
Harbhajan was not only friends with Afridi but with many others, including the current head coach of men in green, Saqlain Mushtaq. He stated that he had spent quality time with Pakistani cricketers.
"A lot of Pakistani players were very good friend of me. Shahid Afridi used to bring a lot of gifts for me from Pakistan. Lala gifted me CDs of Pakistan's Punjabi dramas and Peshawari Chappal. I spent a very good time with these cricketers,"
Apparently, the former spinner also is one of the best friends of Pakistan's ex-bowler Shoaib Akhtar. Two are often seen engaged in fun, entertainment, and trolling. Their last banter was Harbhajan's claim about Pakistan Cricket Team that it should not play India in T20 World Cup 2021 since the defeat is known. Shoaib had every legit reason to troll him back after India lost by ten wickets.
