Cricketer-turned-expert Harbhajan Singh and former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir got involved in a Twitter banter after Pakistan thumped India by 10 wickets in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup. This victory was historic for Pakistan as it was their first win in 13 attempts against India on the global stage. The special win was celebrated by millions of Pakistani fans and experts.
Post the win, Amir took a dig at Harbhajan by uploading an old video of the India-Pakistan game. In a short clip, Shahid Afridi was seen smashing Harbhajan for four sixes in a Test match. In the caption, the former fast bowler trolled Harbhajan by saying that conceding four sixes in four balls in a Test match is not so good.

The former India off-spinner didn’t take the comment too lightly and hit back at Amir by reminding him of the infamous spot-fixing saga in the Lord’s Test in 2010. The left-arm pace bowler deliberately overstepped against England and was handed a ban of five years.
"Lords mai no ball kaise ho gya tha ?? Kitna liya kisne diya ? Test cricket hai no ball kaise ho sakta hai ? Shame on u and ur other supporters for disgracing this beautiful game" tweeted Harbhajan.
Amir didn’t take this Tweet sportively and started to use crass language. Harbhajan didn’t like such ugly use of words and said, "For people like you @iamamirofficial only Paisa paisa paisa paisa .. na izzat na kuch aur sirf paisa..bataoge nahi apne desh walo ko aur supporters ko k kitna mila tha .. get lost I feel yuk talking to people like you for insulting this game and making people fool with ur acts."
In his last Tweet, Harbhajan posted a clip of him hitting Amir for a six in Asia Cup. He gave a fitting caption to the post and wrote, "Fixer ko sixer.. out of the park @iamamirofficial chal daffa ho ja."
