It was off the fourth delivery of the tenth over of the Rising Pune Supergiants innings when Saurabh Tiwary pulled a short-pitched delivery from Harbhajan, in front of the wicket. The ball was racing to the long on boundary, when both Tim Southee and Ambati Rayadu converged to stop the four. Watch what happened next:
The episode reminded cricket fans of the famous Harbhajan Singh – S Sreesanth showdown that took place during the first season of the IPL.
While tempers flared on the playing field, many on Twitter saw the lighter side of it and responded in the funniest possible manners.
The difference between Harbhajan-Rayudu and Harbhajan-Sreesanth is that Harbhajan is married now.— Angad Singh Ranyal (@PiratedSardar) May 1, 2016
He has learned the art of apologising.
Hilarious to watch Harbhajan shouting at Rayudu for a full-length dive, literally five minutes after he misfielded on the boundary himself.— Alt Cricket (@AltCricket) May 1, 2016
Harbhajan: BC saale ball toh pakad theek se.— Hitman Cricket (@HitmanCricket) May 1, 2016
Rayudu: Nehra samajhta hai kya apne aapko, chal bhaag.
Harbhajan: Cool dude.#RPSvsMI
Rayudu's reaction to Harbhajan's displeasure is one of the funniest things this #IPL2016— Ajit Vijaykumar (@ajvk1984) May 1, 2016
Hope Harbhajan manages to stay this cool all the time!
