Mumbai: Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh is always remembered for his unique bowling action. Although the Punjab cricketer has been spending the past few years only playing the extravagant Indian Premier League (IPL), his doosras and off-spinners still remain very difficult for batsmen to pick up.
Bollywood actress Saiyami Kher became the latest to replicate the Mumbai Indians spinner’s bowling action. She took to Twitter to flaunt her bowling skills, inspired by Harbhajan in a gully cricket match.
“Friends and cricket.. a perfect way to spend my Sunday! My Harbhajan inspired action. Harbhajan Singh am I anywhere close? #SundayFunday,” she tweeted.
Impressed by her imitation, Harbhajan Singh lauded her effort and gave her a tip.
Very good 😊👏👏👏 spin the ball 🏏 https://t.co/9F3xwapnIp— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) September 10, 2017
Saiyami was once a professional cricketer, representing Maharashtra at the state level. She was even considered for selection in the Indian women's cricket team.
A decent all-rounder, she excelled as a medium pacer before parting ways with the sport to pursue acting.
Despite her inclination towards films and acting, Saiyami also ensures she makes time to play cricket.
