The Ind Vs Aus Cricket World Cup 2023 has enthralled the nation to a dramatic and grueling innings. While the Indian Cricket Team was struggling with their batting line-up, they made sure to create bats for the Australian Team’s batting line-up as well. This historic match is witnessed by many celebrities, including Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma and KL Rahul’s wife Athiya Shetty.
During the game, the two women were seen having a small talkative moment in the stands, with the cameras zooming in on them while they were on screen. However, something terrible followed, which no one expected.
While Anushka Sharma and Athiya Shetty were seen on screen, Harbhajan Singh, who was doing the Hindi commentary, thought it was a moment for some lighthearted digs. However, he gave up and ended up trolling the actresses, who happened to be the wives of the best cricketers in the country.
Trolling the two actresses, Bhajji, during the live broadcast, said: “The main cricket is the biggest cricket ki ho rahi hogi ya phir movies ki.. kyunki cricket ke baare mein toh main jaanta nahi kitni samajh hogi.”
His comment obviously did not go down well with the netizens. While some people called out the former cricketer for his misogynistic comment, others demanded an apology. A user said, “What else to expect from the Aam Aadmi Party leader.” Another opinion agreed with Bhajji and said, “Girls are less interested in cricket. Often, they don’t even know the basic rules, even after watching a few times.” A third commented on it and said, “As if his wife was a test cricketer.”
However, some pointed out that this was blown out of proportion. Commentary reads, “What’s the se*ist there? They don’t know much about this park because they belong to someone else. As simple as that.” Another comment said, “@harbhajan_singh has lost his marbles since his retirement. From praising Pakistan’s Afridi to this misogynistic jibe, Harbhajan is reaching new levels every other day. What a loser!”
An irked user asked Harbhajan Singh, “What do you mean women understand cricket or not?? Please apologize immediately.” Another comment said, “By that logic, you should comment only when the spinners are bowling. I doubt you have any understanding of fast bowling or batting. And forget about parking completely… idiot.”
A user tried to calm everyone down, pointing out that it was just a light-hearted dig, and wrote, “How insensitive do you have to be to be offended by such a light-hearted dig.”
