Harbhajan Singh's Bowling Action Imitated By Girl, Twitter Reacts
Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has found another admirer for his unique bowling action and a video of a young girl imitating it has gone viral. The video started getting circulated after former Test player and current commentator Aakash Chopra shared the video on his Twitter. Harbhajan proceeded to retweet the video too.
Hey @harbhajan_singh, looks like you’re her inspiration....like a lot of other aspiring spinners in the country ☺️👏🤗 #AakashVanipic.twitter.com/Oy6IxV4Zdb— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) October 23, 2019
Chopra shared the informally recorded slow-motion video with his commentary, pointing out how the girl resembled Harbhajan Singh. Near the end of the video, Chopra proceeds to call the girl "Harbhajan Singh 2.0". Fans on Twitter were as fascinated as Chopra was.

Soon enough, a few fans started pointing out how the action also resembled a little bit of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah as well. One could also argue that the girl's bowling action also served as a reminder of Sunil Narine's bowling action. A fan also shared a funny video of an exemplary batsman.

Harbhajan proceeded to retweet the video on his own timeline.
Where is Harbhajan Singh?
The ace spinner has been away from the limelight for a while now. He still plays cricket for the Chennai Super Kings and has adopted the commentator or expert's role for cricket broadcasters. Harbhajan recently came into the news when he enlisted himself for The Hundred's Draft, England's new 100-ball cricket tournament. However, since the BCCI's rules do not let active players participate in leagues rivalling the IPL, Harbhajan had to pull out of the draft. Harbhajan added that he did not mind this move as his main priority is to play well for the Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming IPL.
