Veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh is an active figure on social media and from supporting the national team to updating his fans, he makes sure that he remains a presence online. Harbhajan, who is currently representing Punjab in the Ranji Trophy 2017, posted a photo of him bowling in the nets on November 22. However, it did not go well as one of the Twitter users went on to ask the off-spinner to realise that his days of making a comeback in the national team are over and he should not make a fool of himself.

“As the saying goes “U can’t teach an old dog new tricks”Bhajji ur best days r over realise it n call it a day.Retire with grace from international cricket.Dont make a fool of iurself like some of ur predecessors.is all I can say. (sic)” said the user.

The last time, 37-year-old spinner was seen in Indian jersey was in 2016 in a T20I match against UAE. However, he has not featured in Tests or ODIs since 2015.

Replying to Smith’s message, Harbhajan said, “Old dog like u can only bark..so plz continue to do that.this is what u have learn I think all ur life..you have already lost the battle coz u have given up on learning new things.everyday there is new thing to learn. Provided we want to learn.dont teach others ur ways.”
