Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir sent a heart-warming reply to his former teammate Harbhajan Singh after the latter congratulated him for his emphatic performance in Lok Sabha elections 2019.
Gambhir was leading in East Delhi against Congress’ Arvinder Singh Lovely and Aam Aadmi Party’s Atishi by a huge margin and that is when Harbhajan wrote: “Congratulations my brother for your win @GautamGambhir more power to you @BJP4India.”
Congratulations my brother for your win @GautamGambhir 👍🤛 💪 more power to you @BJP4India— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) May 23, 2019
Gambhir took note of this message from Harbhajan and he replied: “Thanks a lot Bhajji paa. Ur wishes mean a lot to me. Just hoping to make a difference to as many lives as possible. Saw a glimpse of you in @IPL, the turn, the bounce everything is there Phaji. Lagta hai picture abhi baaki hai.”

Gambhir was referring to Harbhajan’s good performance for Chennai Super Kings in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL). The off-spinner scalped 16 wickets in 11 matches and played a pivotal role in CSK reaching the final, where they lost to Mumbai Indians by a solitary run.
