India’s ODI series against New Zealand is currently underway and the latter has already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead. Hence, the final ODI at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui is nothing, but a dead rubber. Amidst some riveting action on the field of play, the presenters in the studios are also having some fair amount of fun. Two of them are Corey Anderson and Harbhajan Singh.
Both of them are current cricketers, but its been a fair amount of time since the duo last plied their trade in national colours. The duo entertains the viewers in the pre-match and post-match shows and also puts forth analysis surrounding the strategies and tactics of the teams. Recently, Harbhajan taught Anderson some Bhangra, a dance form popular in the northern part of India.
In a video uploaded by Harbhajan on his Instagram handle, both of them can be seen, setting the stage on fire with some dance moves. Harbhajan captioned the video and wrote, “Well done @c_j_anderson nice moves.. will do some more soon #kiwibrother,”
Thereafter, Shikhar Dhawan, who’s recovering from a shoulder injury, also took his chance of poking fun at Corey and Harbhajan. The left-handed Dhawan replied on the post and wrote, “Aaha ohhooo aahhaa … oh balle,”
Here is Harbhajan’s post with Anderson

Black Caps dominate
The Kiwis were beaten black and blue in the T20I series, being handed a 5-0 drubbing. Two of those matches in Hamilton and Wellington went into the Super Over. Even in the last match in Mount Maunganui, the hosts were in a commanding position before they threw it away. To add insult to injury, Kane Williamson, their captain, injured his shoulder and didn’t play the last two T20Is.
However, in the ODI series, the Black Caps have come out all guns blazing under the leadership of Tim Southee. In the first ODI at the Seddon Park, Ross Taylor’s century scripted a victory for New Zealand. The home team also won the second ODI by 22 runs at the Eden Park in Auckland. Kyle Jamieson made his debut and picked up the Player of the Match for his all-round show with bat and ball.
