The sour political relations between India and Pakistan have dented sporting ties between the two nations, yet the cricketers from both sides share a love bond. Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar is known to be a good friend of Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh. The players belong to the same province, ‘Punjab’, thus share a great camaraderie.
Shoaib and Harbhajan, who are in Dubai for the International T20 Cup are having some fun moments with each other. Ahead of the India – Pakistan game on October 24, Shoaib Akhtar tried to pull Harbhajan Singh’s leg by referring to him as “Mr. I know it all”.
Akhtar shared an image of him and Harbhajan attending an event to discuss the India-Pakistan game and called Harbhajan “Mr. I Know it all”
The Indian off-spinner, who is known for his wit and humour left everyone is splits by a savage reply.
Retweeting Akhtar’s tweet, Harbhajan wrote, “When u have 400 plus test wickets am sure you know more about cricket then someone with less then 200 wickets.”.

Recently, Harbhajan had trolled Akhtar for Pakistan’s poor record against India in the T20 International Cup. Notably, Pakistan have never defeated India in world events, having lost all their battles.
“I have told Shoaib Akhtar that what is the point of playing against us? You should just give us a walkover,” Harbhajan told Star Sports in a video shared by the broadcaster on social media.
“You will play against us, lose again and get disappointed. What’s the point? Shoaib Akhtar, there’s no chance. We have a very solid team, very strong team. It will blow your team away,” added Harbhajan.
The teams are set to cross swords at the Dubai International Stadium on October 24 in their T20 International Cup opener.
