Harbhajan Singh trolls South Africa, asks Jonty Rhodes to bat in Ranchi
South Africa is having a bad day at the office now. They couldn’t find any weakness to mount pressure on the Indians and it was so easy for the hosts to destroy them easily in the first two Test matches.
With visitors struggling to get off the mark, India’s out-of-favour veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh sensed this as a perfect opportunity to target South Africa. He took a dig at the team’s batting department by asking former cricketer and fielding great Jonty Rhodes to jump into action in order to save his team.
It all started when Jonty Rhodes posted a pic on social media platform Instagram where he is seen sporting the South Africa jersey with his name written on the back during a photoshoot session.
“Feels good to be back in the green and gold, even if it is only for a shoot at the iconic #mehboobstudio in Mumbai,” wrote Rhodes.
About to shoot at the iconic @mehboobstudio ; hope @akshaykumar got the message about being available as my body double today, to do my stunts. At 50+ I can still fly, it’s just the landing that may be an issue pic.twitter.com/9vzEuR8IUA

Seeing this, Harbhajan Singh replied: “Can u play the last test in Ranchi, SA need some batting Jonty.”
In reply, Jonty wrote: “They need much more than me!!!”
India are the one and only team to have registered 200 points in the ICC Test Championship points table after registering 4 wins. No other team has secured even 100 points.
Having already won 2-0, Virat Kohli wants the boys to put up a good show and they would not take the opposition lightly in the hope of completing a whitewash.
