If Harbhajan Singh was the prankster during his days in the dressing room, Shikhar Dhawan has surely taken over the mantle from the former off-spinner. Dhawan is funny and crazy at times, something that makes him a huge hit among fans. Dhawan was recently seen having some fun on Instagram with his former colleague Harbhajan Singh. Both were participating in giving each other nicknames. Dhawan’s post on Instagram read, “Sheeran wale rob yaaran saanu hi faban ge #tuesdaymorning #potd,” which prompted Harbhajan to poke fun at the batsman as he commented, ‘Daaku.’ Dhawan returned the compliment with a new nickname for Harbhajan, ‘Jagga Jatt.’ Also Read - BCCI Appoints Hemang Amin as Interim CEO After Rahul Johri's Resignation
To this Harbhajan Singh gave him a nickname ‘Daku’ which means somebody who robs people. Bhajji probably called him that because he had a black shawl wrapped around him like the dacoits from Bollywood movies.
The convo did not end there as Dhawan responded to Harbhajan Singh calling him ‘Jagga Jatt’.
Meanwhile, in the cricketing front, Dhawan has lost his spot in the Test squad after a horrendous run in England. He could manage only an abysmal 168 runs in eight innings. But he is one of the star batsmen in the limited overs squad. He recently bagged the Man of the Series in India’s triumphant Asia Cup campaign. Dhawan slammed two centuries in five matches to amass a staggering 342 runs at an average of 68.40.
