Over the years, cricket as a sport has delivered a lot of controversial moments that stay in the hearts and minds of fans for a long time. One such moment happened during IPL 2008, when Harbhajan Singh slapped his Punjab teammate S Sreesanth after a close finish against Mumbai Indians to the shock of everyone including the Kerala bowler himself.
And now 15 years later after the slap gate incident, both former Indian cricketers were going at it once again in a video shared by Rishabh Pant on his Twitter account with a caption, “Can't believe Bhajji pa and Sree fought once again.” But apparently, this was a promotional video for a food delivery company called Zomato.
In the 30-second clip, Harbhajan Singh and S Sreesanth were seen sharing a lift with an unassuming lady in the background who eventually started recording them on her smartphone as their brief exchange got heated. They were actually going back and forth about how to pronounce Zomato as Bhajji kept calling it “Zomaito” while Sree referred to it as “Zomaato” again and again.
At the very end of the video shared by Pant, it was Sreesanth, who stopped the lift, while Singh covered the lift camera as they both told each other to settle their score once and for all.

Also, the Twitter account of Zomato quoted the video shared by Rishabh Pant with a cheeky caption that read, “2008 to 2023, some things never change.”
Furthermore, Harbhajan Singh and S Sreesanth are currently part of Star Sports team of experts that analyses all things cricket and much more about the Indian Premier League 2023 season.
