New Delhi: Both Shoiab Akhtar and Harbhajan Singh are known for their fierce competitive nature, and in fact, both have played leading roles whenever India and Pakistan face-off in the field.
But according to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the celebrated cricketers are going to team-up for a comedy show titled as Indian Mazaak League for Life OK.
The former Pakistan fast bowler revealed that "now we will be on the same team and I'm looking forward to that. I hope we can do justice to the job."
About the upcoming show and his penchant for fun, Akhtar said “I’ve had my share of fun in the dressing room. There was so much of banter and harmless leg-pulling that my jaws would ache. Among the Indian cricketers Ashish Nehra and Yuvraj Singh are a riot, as also Virender Sehwag.”
Recently, the ace Indian spinner claimed that the 'Rawalpindi Express' had once beaten himself and Yuvraj Singh in a hotel room in Pakistan.
Laughing off the claim, Akhtar had clarified the incident, "I think he has made a big deal of it. Yes it did happen during 2004 when we were playing a Test in Rawalpindi. But it was nothing serious and all fun,"
Harbhajan narrated the incident during a show on an Indian television channel and his claims were highlighted by Pakistani media.
"Basically we were horsing around and doing some arm wrestling and that is all but no Bhajji and Yuvi are my younger brothers no question of beating them up," Akhtar said.
