Sourav Ganguly, Former India captain-turned-cricket administrator, made an innocent error while commenting on a picture shared by teammate Harbhajan Singh, on social media.
Harbhajan, who played more than 100 Tests for India, on Monday night, had shared a photograph of his family taking blessings at the Golden Temple in Amritsar.
Ganguly has a verified profile on Twitter, but he is certainly not a regular user of the application which is famous among several of his other teammates such as Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Aakash Chopra and even Virender Sehwag.
Post Harbhajan’s tweet, Ganguly noticed the photograph some time later and made a touching comment but with an error. “..beta bahut sundar hai bhajj..bahut pyar dena (Your son looks beautiful, Bhajji. Give lots of love to him)”.
@harbhajan_singh ..beta bahut sundar hai bhajj..bahut pyar dena— Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) November 20, 2017
Ganguly realised his error soon, and tried to rectify it by jokingly telling Harbhajan that he is ‘getting old’.
@harbhajan_singh ..🙏 maf karna beti bahut sundoor hai..getting old bhajj ..— Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) November 20, 2017
Harbhajan was gracious in his reply, as he mentioned Ganguly’s daughter Sana in his reply.
Dada thank you for your blessings..love to Sana.. hope to see u soon😊 https://t.co/2WXrFL9tKz— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) November 20, 2017
Harbhajan enjoyed a successful run under Ganguly’s captaincy across formats, with the two of them being a part of a remarkable change that came about in the Indian cricket team in the early 2000s.
