Harbhajan Singh is not active in cricket for quite some time now but has been very active on social media. The veteran spinner makes sure to give his views on the game and other day-to-day affairs in the country on a daily basis to his millions of followers on the social media platform. His last competitive game was the IPL 2019 final.
Harbhajan was expected to play in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) but had pulled out of the tournament citing personal reasons. The former India spinner was a part of the Chennai Super Kings squad but eventually decided against traveling to the UAE for the tournament. Along with him, Suresh Raina had also pulled out of the tournament citing personal reasons.
But unlike Harbhajan, Raina had traveled to the UAE with the team before returning home. CSK definitely missed their senior players as they had a poor outing in the tournament. For the first time in the history of IPL, CSK missed out on a playoffs spot. The three-time champions finished at the seventh spot in the eight-team competition.
CSK finished IPL 2020 with 6 wins from 14 league games. 3 of those wins came in their last three games after they were already out of the tournament. They, however, managed to spoil the parties of a couple of teams towards the end. CSK beat Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders to end their hopes of making it to the playoffs.
Harbhajan Singh trolled
Harbhajan Singh’s knack for giving his views on almost every matter recent led to him being trolled on Twitter. The Twitter users had some fun at the expense of the World Cup-winner after he asked whether Indians ‘seriously’ need a vaccine against Covid-19. He pointed out that India’s recovery rate without the vaccine is 93.6 percent while vaccines that were being developed seems to have less accuracy rate.
The former India spinner even mentioned data stating Pfizer and biotech vaccine’s accuracy is being claimed at 94 percent, while Moderna’s and Oxford’s accuracy rate is at 94.5 percent and 90 percent, respectively. Twitter users were amused with Harbhajan’s tweet and were quick to troll him. Some even asked him to delete the tweet.
Here is what Twitter users are saying:
If everyone in indian cricket team has a MoM award, then India should win all matches.
It doesn't happen that way, bhai. Statistics can be misleading and can help make a fool of ourselves.

Myth: COVID Cases are Rising But People Aren’t Dying
A fatal velocity ⬇️
First 100,000 deaths = 100 days
Last 100,000 deaths = 10 days
Infection fatality rate is lower but absolute number of deaths are now accumulating faster since cases are manifold.
Take it seriously.

100-93.6 = 6.4%.
(6.4% of Indian population is at risk of death due to Corona).
The vaccine will help save 94.5% out of this 6.4% as well.
In a country of a billion+ people, that is a huge number.
It is a difference between 88,618,262 people dying vs 4,874,004 people dying.

93.6 % okay and rest 6.4 will be not selected for 2021.
"Vaccine is essential"
It's not a cricket match where review is allowed.

Do not post such stupid tweets.. 🤦♂️🤦♂️
If there was a 5% chance that the plane will crash, will u board it?
A recovery rate of 93.6% means 6.4% will get serious/die.
Now calculate the 6.4% of 1.4 billion population!! DO THE MATH!

When Indian batsman can chase 350 runs in an ODI match then why do we need specialist bowlers, even part time bowlers will do
