Harbhajan Singh recently took to Instagram to showcase some of his cooking skills. The Indian spinner cooked a popular north Indian dish called ‘Chole’.
Harbhajan is first seen putting some chopped onions into the pan and further adds some tomatoes and spices. Then, he finally added some boiled Chole. You can watch the clip here:
The 40-year-old was last seen in action during the 14th edition of the IPL, which was postponed indefinitely after breaches inside various teams’ bio-bubbles. The off-spinner joined the Kolkata Knight Riders in a mini auction earlier this year.
Harbhajan played three games for KKR and failed to pick up a wicket for the franchise. Skipper Eoin Morgan only used 7 overs of the veteran spinner over the course of three games.
With the second phase of the T20 league set to resume in September in UAE, it remains to be seen whether Harbhajan Singh can make an impact for the Kolkata franchise. KKR had a torrid time in IPL 2021, winning just twice in their opening seven games.
“There is some higher power that watches over me when I play any match at Eden Gardens” – Harbhajan Singh
With the first phase of the IPL 2021 taking place at neutral venues, Harbhajan Singh failed to get a chance to play on the hallowed turf of Eden Gardens, the home ground of KKR. The veteran spinner in a recent chat said some divine power looks over him whenever he plays in Kolkata.
“I believe there is some higher power that watches over me when I play any match at Eden Gardens. Only a select few have been showered with the blessings of doing so well in the city of Kolkata, and I’m one of its favourite sons. I’m really glad I got my hat-trick for India at Eden Gardens,” Harbhajan said as quoted by KKR.in.
In seven Test matches in Kolkata, Harbhajan Singh has snared 46 wickets at an average of just under 22, including six five-wicket hauls and a ten-wicket haul. The spinner caught the imagination of the Indian cricket fans and the world by taking 13 wickets in the historic match against Australia in 2001 where India won after following on.
