'Can we send them to Bigg Boss?': Harbhajan and Amir's Twitter war generates meme-fest

04:53 PM Oct 27, 2021 | FPJ Web Desk

Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh and Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Amir have been involved in a war of words on social media ever since Virat Kohli's side suffered a 10-wicket loss at the hands of the Babar Azam-led team on October 24.

In a series of eight tweets between the two, Harbhajan has even reminded Amir about the spot-fixing scandal in England in 2010, which resulted in three Pakistan cricketers -- Amir, Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt -- being banned by the International Cricket Council for five years from domestic and international cricket.

It all started with Amir taking a swipe at Harbhajan, following Pakistan's 10-wicket win, tweeting, "Harbhajan Paa ji ne TV to nai toda apna? (Did Harbhajan break his TV?)"

To this, Harbhajan replied, "Ab Tum bi bologe @iamamirofficial. yeh 6 ki landing tumhare ghar k tv par to nahi hui thi? Koi nahi hota hai end of the day it's a game of cricket as u rightly said (Now you will also say things? Did this six land on your TV at home?)"

With the tweet, Harbhajan attached a video of him hitting a last-over six against Pakistan.

Amir then taunted Harbhajan with a video of Shahid Afridi slamming the Indian spinner for four consecutive sixes.

Harbhajan, nicknamed 'Turbanator', then dredged out a picture of Amir bowling a no-ball during the infamous Lord's Test of 2010, with "disgrace" written in bold letters.

The ugly spat went viral on Twitter.
