Harbhajan Singh shared a photo of a slipper that had loosened by its straps, apparently after “a fast doppelganger in trench cricket,” and cricket fans responded to the post with their memories of cricket cricket. “Chappal after a fast double in trench cricket,” Harbhajan wrote on Twitter, tagging his former Indian teammates Yuvraj Singh and Sachin Tendulkar. “That’s why we only trade in trench cricket in borders,” replied a Twitter user. Alternative uses of the chappal were also suggested. “The chappals in this state were once used as a bat for table tennis games,” suggested one user. Harbhajan later deleted the tweet.



Harbhajan, who is now only active in T20 cricket, had withdrawn from the 2020 Indian Premier League for personal reasons. He was part of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team for IPL 2020.

The 40-year-old off-spinner has played 103 tests, 236 one-day internationals and 28 Twenty20 internationals for India since his debut in 1998.

He has 417 Test wickets to his credit, along with 269 wickets in ODIs and 25 in T20Is.

Harbhajan was part of the Indian team that won the 2011 Men’s World Cup and he has also won the IPL four times – in 2013, 2015 and 2017 with Mumbai Indians and 2018 with Chennai Super Kings.


Harbhajan last played for India in the World T20 2016 at home and has been practicing his trade in the IPL ever since.

He was chosen by CSK at the 2018 auction and has been with the franchise ever since.
