Harbhajan and Gilchrist engage in a war of words on twitter during 2001 Hat-trick
Harbhajan Singh on Wednesday Tweet former Australian wicket-keeper, Adam Gilchrist, asking him to “stop crying” for his dismissal during the famous hat-trick at Eden Gardens at the historic Kolkata event in 2001.
Harbhajan became the first Indian to make a test hat-trick by taking Ricky Ponting, Gilchrist and Shane Warne wickets to finish with 7/123 figures. He starred in India’s epic 171-runs victory by taking another six wickets in the second innings.
Gilchrist was the second man to get out by the leg before the wicket, but replays showed that the ball was hitting his bat first.
There was no Decision Review System (DRS) during those days and Gilchrist, regarded as one of the most lethal punches to have played the game, Adam Gilchrist Tweet: “No DRS at the top of the Harbhajan hat-trick video.” He also added a sad emoticon.
In response, Harbhajan Singh Tweet on Adam Gilchrist
“Do you think you would have survived for a long time if you weren’t the first ball? Stop crying over these things, buddy… even though you spoke sense after your days of play … but few things ever change your first example of that Always crying,” tweet by the 39-year-old, Harbhajan Singh.
