After India were made to eat humble pie on Sunday when they lost to Pakistan in the T20 World cup, former left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir took a dig at Harbhajan Singh on social media.

Amir took to Twitter on Monday and asked, “Harbhajan Paa ji ne TVto nai toda apna?” which loosely translates to “Did Harbhajan break his TV.” The comment was made over the taunts of Indians about Pakistani fans breaking their television sets after losing to India in the past editions of world cups.

To this, Singh replied on Twitter saying, “Ab Tum bi bologe @iamamirofficial. yeh 6 ki landing tumhare ghar k tv par to nahi hui thi ?? Koi nahi hota hai end of the day it’s a game of cricket as u rightly said” which loosely translates to “Now you will also say things? Did this six land on your TV at home?” With this tweet he attached a video of him hitting a last over six against Pakistan.

Things just kept on escalating from there as the two cricketers tweeted out replies to each other with Amir taunting the Indian spinner with a video of him conceding 4 sixes off 4 balls from Shahid Afridi.

Not one to back down, Harbhajan Singh slammed Amir for the ‘Lord’s Test No-Ball’ spot fixing incident in 2010 to which Amir replied with “Bare hi dheet ho talking about my past wouldn’t change the fact that tumko 3 din pehle moun ki khani pari. and how about your illegal bowling action mate ab nikal or humko WC win karta dekh. walk over tu nhi mila jao Park me walk karo u’ll feel better @harbhajan_singh” which if loosely translated means ” Talking about my past won’t change the fact that you lost on Sunday. And what about your illegal bowling action mate? Now, just watch us lift the World Cup. You didn’t get a walkover, now go and walk in the park.”

Harbhajan fired back with the same video of him hitting the six in the last over to win the match for India. And simply tweeted, “Fixer ko sixer, chal daffa ho ja” along with the aforementioned video.

On Wednesday evening, Harbhajan also made a  video which was published on his Youtube channel with the headline ‘Apne desh ko bechne wale Mohammad Amir apni aukaat mei rahe (Selling your own country Mohammad Amir, stay in your limits).

“India-Pakistan is a high pressure game and a lot depends on the result. On that day, the Pakistani side played very well. They beat us in all departments. We gratefully accepted it. The talk is over now. Before that me and Shoaib Akhtar, we both work for media, I support my team, he supports his team which is fair enough. Banter between me and him has been going on for many years. In that another person came in between, Mohammad Amir. I want to know who he is. Because me and Shoaib have a very old friendship. We know each other for many years. We have done shows together too.”

Harbhajan stepped up his attack on Amir and called him a disgrace and black spot on cricket while reminding fans of the 2010 spot-fixing saga. “In between all this Amir puts a tweet asking me If I broke my TV, I said no I did not break any TV. I tweeted him the six I hit him saying that might have landed on your TV. He replied I was busy watching the video of Shahid Afridi hitting you for sixes. In between all this he put another tweet and then even I tweeted there was a big no-ball in Lords, how did that happen. We know how it happened and what he did,” he said.

Referring to the Shoaib Akhtar walk-out from a TV show, Inzamam ul Haq also commented on the incident. “We cricketers also sit in studio and use very rude words, which is not good. We should be careful. (The Shoaib Akhtar walk out ) or even Harbhajan Amir issue, these things shouldn’t happen. When I was ill recently, Sachin Tendulkar tweeted, which was appreciated. So many people listen to us. If we speak good things, people will listen. If we speak bad, people will listen to that. We have to control,” Inzamam said on Geo Tv.
