Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh had a social media debacle when he put out a harsh tweet against the West Indies team on Friday. The Windies are touring India and are facing a tough time against India in the two-match series at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium in Rajkot. India is the #1 test team in the world at the moment.
India declared their first innings at a humongous score of 649/9 but the Windies could only score 94/6 at stumps on Day 2.
They are on the brink of a massive and embarrassing defeat. After such a performance, Harbhajan tweeted, “With all due respect to West Indies Cricket but I have a question for u all…will this West Indies team qualify for Ranji quarters from the plate group? Elite se toh nahin hoga”.
Cricket fans, however, did not like this attack against West Indies. Many of his fans stated that he should have been more careful with his words in public. The enraged response was because of the fact that the West Indies team is considered to be sober and humble and undeserving of such treatment.
Many Indian fans pointed out on Twitter that India had been in a similar situation not too long ago, when they struggled against England, and Harbhajan should have kept that in mind before taking a dig at the West Indies team.
