Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is celebrating his 40th birthday today. Indian cricketers from the retired players to modern-day players took their time to wish the veteran off-spinner. Interestingly, Indian captain, Virat Kohli wished him through a funny Instagram story.
Virat Kohli wished Harbhajan Singh through his Instagram story. He used the opportunity to pull Bhajji’s leg. Through the picture, Kohli recalled an incident where both of them were playing football and Harbhajan wasn’t at the best of his physical shape. In the photo, it can be seen that he is trying to kick the ball despite being not physically fit for a football game.
“Oh balle bhajju paa what a kick,” he wrote and added laughing emojis.
“Wishing you a very happy bday paji. God bless. Kick improve karlo please. Throwback to fatter times,” Kohli added.
Indian cricketers before the rise of Virat Kohli and co. were not that much focussed on fitness. But since Kohli took over the captaincy, there has been a sudden improvement in the fitness and physical shape of all players.
Among the many wishes that the veteran received from his former teammates, it was Yuvraj Singh’s birthday wish that stood off. Yuvraj took to Instagram to post a video collaborating the time the duo has spent on and off the field. He also raised concerns regarding Bhajji’s age.
“Is it your happy 40 or 47 Here’s a glimpse of the wonderful years spent pulling each other’s leg, sometimes pants too You have always proved to the world Singh you will always be King After quarantine party to leni hai 100%, have a great day love you paaji @harbhajan3,” Yuvraj Singh captioned the post.
Harbhajan has altogether played 103 Tests for India and has picked up 417 wickets. His last appearance for team India came in Asia Cup 2016.
