While Virender Sehwag can poke fun at his fellow teammates in good humour, he can also surprise them with some touching birthday messages. On the occasion of Harbhajan Singh’s 37th birthday, Sehwag shared a moving wish, which revealed an anecdote from Bhajji’s life.
Although the veteran off-spinner hasn’t retired from the game, he was last seen in the international arena in March 2016 against UAE in Dhaka. He also had a brilliant run in the IPL where he bowled with an exceptional economy rate. Harbhajan was a part of the champion Mumbai Indians’ team which defeated the Rising Pune Supergiant in a nail-biting final.
Taking to Twitter, Sehwag wrote: “Hpy B’day @harbhajan_singh Frm thinking of going to Canada & bcum a truck driver to support family,to bcmng 1 of d best bowlers,grt journey.”

Harbhajan Singh was a part of two victorious World Cup campaigns under the leadership of MS Dhoni. India defeated Pakistan in a thrilling final to lift the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007. Four years later, they won the 2011 World Cup at home, thus lifting the coveted trophy after 28 years. Harbhajan played a vital role in both tournaments.
With the Indian team currently in the Caribbean for the ongoing limited overs series, players will certainly wish Bhajji on his special day.
