Harbhajan Singh took a dig at South Africa, making fun of the batting performance displayed by the vising side in the ongoing three-match Test series in India. On an Instagram post shared by Jonty Rhodes, Harbhajan Singh went on to ask the former South Africa batsman to come and bat for the visitors for some consolation in the third Test, starting on Saturday in Ranchi. "Feels good to be back in the green and gold, even if it is only for a shoot at the iconic #mehboobstudio in Mumbai #stillflying," Jonty Rhodes captioned his picture on Instagram, in which he is seen wearing the green South Africa jersey.

Harbhajan Singh took no time to post a sarcastic reply on Jonty Rhodes' post, asking: "Can you play the last Test in Ranchi SA need need some batting Jonty?"

To much delight of fans and the veteran India spinner, Rhodes responded: "They need much more than me!"
