September 24 isn't just another day for Indian cricket fans. It is the date that reminds fans of the epic 2007 World Cup win by the Indian cricket team. The Men in Blue without some of its established stars, the likes of Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly or Sachin Tendulkar, went on to lift the inaugural T20 World Cup under the charismatic leadership of MS Dhoni. The win ushered a whole new era of Indian cricket and announced the arrival of Dhoni the Captain Cool.
On its 14th anniversary today, veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who was part of that World Cup-winning side, remembered the historic day. Bhajji shared a throwback picture of the team lifting the trophy. "When your FAITH becomes stronger than your FEAR … then your dream can become a reality #champions #T20WorldCup2007 #TeamIndia," he captioned the post.
While most of the comment section was filled with congratulatory and positive messages, a particular netizen wasn't quite pleased and even accused the 41-year-old of cropping Dhoni from the picture. The fan thought that it was Dhoni who was behind the trophy emoji and Bhajji had quite deliberately chosen not to include him in the picture.
"Nice Bhai Nicely Croped MSD Photo," the social media user commented.
However, the allegation did not go down too well with the veteran spinner and he even decided to give it back to the troll. He then posted the original picture without the edit and wrote, "Now u can lick what u see in the picture I cropped."
Check out Harbhajan's comment here:
The Turbanator is currently in the UAE and is part of the Kolkata Knight Riders camp. While he hasn't yet got an opportunity to roll his arms over in the second leg of IPL 2021, he can be seen donning a mentor's cap time and again and sharing his rich insights on the game with the youngsters. Bhajji has already started looking at a career beyond sport and has ventured into action, anchoring, hosting and more. The veteran of over 100 Test matches is even spotted as a cricket pundit on various broadcast and news networks.
