Team India cricketers Harbhajan Singh and Shikhar Dhawan have often shown their affection towards each other by commenting over each other;s social media posts. Recently, Harbhajan Singh had even given a new nickname to Shikhar Dhawan over his quarantine look. In the picture, the' Gabbar' of Team India is posing with a muffler tied around his head like a turban. Harbhajan Singh called Dhawan "Babbu" after looking at the image.
On Thursday, Harbhajan Singh showed his humourous side by posting a video on his Instagram handle and also taking a jibe at Shikhar Dhawan. While writing a caption for the video, Harbhajan wrote that the video reminded him of Shikhar Dhawan and asked him to tag his friend who is like that.
In the short video, a mother can be seen going out of the door to throw the garbage. The woman has a garbage bag on one hand while holding her baby in the other. A few moments later, when she comes back she still has garbage bag in her hand but the child is missing. It takes her a while to realize what she has done when she dumps the bag on the door and makes a run for the kid.
The Delhi opener's absent-mindedness is something many of his teammates apart from Harbhajan have testifed to and often make fun of, such as Virat Kohli. Shikhar Dhawan, after liking the post, responded to Harbhajan Singh by saying that Aesha (Shikhar Dhawan's wife) will make his condition miserable for that. Harbhajan commented with a laughing emoji on Shikhar Dhawan’s comment. Incidentally, it was Harbhajan himself who had played 'Cupid' in making Aesha and Shikhar meet each other for the first time.
