Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar teased veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh on Twitter and called him ‘Mr. I know it all’. They had recently met each other in a pre-match discussion on India Today ahead of the India versus Pakistan clash in the T20 World Cup 2021.
Akhtar posted a picture with Harbhajan and wrote, “With Mr. I know it [email protected]_singh in Dubai for a pre-discussion about the mother of all competitions.”

To which, Harbhajan responded with a jibe at Akhtar which wasn’t surprising considering both the cricketers are good friends and they are often pulling each other’s leg.
In response to Akthar’s tweet, the India cricketer wrote, “When u have 400 plus test wickets am sure you know more about cricket than someone with less than 200 wickets.”

Harbhajan has picked up 417 wickets in 103 Test matches, while Akhtar bagged 178 wickets after playing 46 Test matches for Pakistan.
Although the ex-cricketers and fans are getting hyped for the T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan, the cricketers are looking forward to it as just another match.
Recently, India captain Virat Kohli had said the only difference about this match is the high ticket demands. “I have just approached this game as another game of cricket and I know there is a lot of hype around this game, more so with ticket sales and demands of tickets,” Kohli said.
