Harbhajan Singh Lashes Out at a Twitter User Who Asked Him to Retire

New Delhi: India cricketer Harbhajan Singh is one of the most active personalities on social media, who likes to speak his mind on various issues, ranging from sports to social causes as well.

The Turbanator, however, lost his cool when a user on social media gave him unsolicited advice and asked him to 'retire with grace'. This didn't go down well with the ace India spinner and he lashed out him. It all started with Bhajji posing an image online and his post read: "Back to the basics"

This prompted one of the Twitter user to write: "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."

In his reply, Bhajji flew into a rage and wrote: "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"

Harbhajan is considered one of the country's greatest bowlers ever but he has not played for the national team for a long time now. In his glittering career, Bhajji played 103 Test matches in which he scalped 417 wickets. While he also took 269 wickets in 236 ODIs for the 'Men in Blue'.

Bhajji was also part of the Indian team that lifted the 2011 ICC World Cup and 2007 ICC WT20. However, Harbhajan's last appearance for Team India came against UAE in Asia Cup T20 in Dhaka in 2016.
