Shane Watson, Harbhajan Singh make hilarious Yuvraj Singh-Shahid Afridi comparision
Mumbai: Team India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is known for his witty replies and great sense of humour. The ‘Turbanator’ as he is called had a fantastic 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign in which he was a prt of Chennai Super Kings side who went onto lift the title after a gap of 2 years.
During the middle of the tournament, the veteran Indian spinner launched a web show under the title of ‘Bhajji Blast'. Harbhajan hosted some of his CSK teammates during the various episodes of the web series. Among the guest was veteran Australian all-rounder Shane Watson who also played a crucial part in CSK’s title winning campaign. Both players exchanged jokes on the shows and even trolled Yuvraj Singh and Shahid Afridi over their age. The whole conversation started with Watson asking Harbhajan about how old he was during the 2001 Australia tour. To this, the off-spinner replied, "18".
Watson laughed and asked whether he was talking about his 'cricket age' or birth age. Bhajji burst into laughter and asked Watson: "Did you spend lot of time with Afridi?" to which Watson replied: "He (Afridi) has been 36 for about 7 years. That's a great effort." Harbhajan made the conversation more interesting while speaking about Yuvraj Singh: "I will tell you a story. Me and Yuvraj have played a lot of cricket together. Under-14, U-16, U-19, I got overage and Yuvraj still continued to play." He said. Watson also recalled the days when he played against Yuvraj. "I have played against Yuvraj in Under-19 World Cup. He scored 50 odd runs off 20 balls. A year later, he played Champions Trophy in Kenya. He was so dominating," Watson said. Without wasting time, Harbhajan jokingly said: "He (Yuvraj) is also like Afridi."
