When star cricketer Harbhajan Singh shared a popular WhatsApp forward on Twitter, it clearly touched a chord with the people. "While making payment of bill after dinner in restaurant, it feels like state govt & central govt both had a dinner with us," Harbhajan wrote much to the amusement of his fans. The reference is to the new way of levying taxes after the launch of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) this July. Restaurant bills now list Central and State GST separately.

In the past week, Harbhajan has been grabbing the headlines with his tweets pertaining to the ongoing India vs Australia series.
The 37-year-old has been at his trolling best, first, asking Michael Clarke to come out of retirement after Australian batsmen's poor showing in the first three ODIs and then telling a news channel that Australians appear to be Sri Lankans playing in yellow clothing.
Mate u need to come out of your retirement and start playing again I think.Era of Aussies producing top batsmans is over I feel.No quality https://t.co/kGcovxfJWR— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) September 24, 2017
Harbhajan last played for a Test for India in August 2015 while his last one-dayer was in October 2015.
