India and England are facing each other in the fifth and final Test at Oval, London. It was a strange day of cricket on Friday as Alastair Cook played a fine inning of 71 to put England on top in the first session. But India came roaring back with six wickets in the final session. However, amidst the serious cricket, members of the commentary team had their share of fun.
It all began with Shikhar Dhawan performing the ‘Bhangra’ – a traditional North Indian dance, after the ‘dhol’ started playing from the crowd. His jigs then spilled over to those inside the commentary box. Harbhajan Singh was on air at the same time and decided to teach fellow commentator David Lloyd a few dancing moves of his own.

While Harbhajan sang a tune Lloyd laughed and danced on his seat with Rob Key sitting in the middle.

Earlier, Harbhajan Singh was critical of India’s team selection in the final test match. “I am bit surprised to see Hanuma Vihari playing ahead of Karun Nair, who has been part of the team from the first match itself and didn’t get to play a game. Nair has been on the Tour from the beginning, hasn’t got a game, but the new gut comes in to the team from the fourth Test and straight away gets to play,” Harbhajan Singh said.
