Instead of the cricket pitch, the ‘turbanator’ found himself in a wrestling ring challenged by a student of the Khali.

Jalandhar: The veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh who is known to never back away from a fight, faced an uncommon opponent in Jalandhar recently.

Instead of the cricket pitch, the ‘turbanator’ found himself in a wrestling ring challenged by a student of the Khali.

See what happened next... From sledging to stare downs and dare you’s the spinner has seen in all, and been in the thick of many a sporting controversies. Backing away from a challenge is just not his style; so when a homegrown wrestler and student of the Great Khali himself challenged him in the ring, Harbhajan rolled up his sleeves and took a stance.

The muscle bound challenger, confident of his wrestling prowess launched into an attack and charged into Harbhajan. However the lean and light framed cricketer dodged him and used the momentum to shove the wrestler aside and pinned him down in a jiffy. Bajji proved once more, the proverb, ‘the bigger they are the harder they fall’.
