Rohit Sharma on Friday updated his social media page with a secretly-recorded video of his opening batting partner Shikhar Dhawan talking to himself in a flight. This has evoked hilarious reactions from two former Indian cricketers namely Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh.
While sharing the video on Instagram, Sharma wrote, ‘No no he isn’t talking to me! And he’s too old to have an imaginary friend. Why so loco jattji.” Dhawan took the hilarious video in the right spirit and reacted, “was practicing shayeri and janab ney video le liya. Kya dil se yaad kar rha tha wah Maza aa gya. Kaash itne dil se padhaayi bhi kari hoti. (He recorded when I was reciting poetry. I was having a fun time. I wish I could have studied too with such passion).”
Other cricketers too could not stop themselves from reacting to Sharma’s video. Yuvraj Singh posted several ‘rolling on the floor laughing’ emojis, while Harbhajan wrote, “Jatta.” Harbhajan’s emojis indicated that he too was ‘rolling on the floor laughing’ after watching the hilarious video.
Similar reactions followed from Shardul Thakur and Shreyas Iyer.
