“Take a bow @harbhajan_singh ! On behalf of #Punekars a huge thank you to you #Bhajji,” Vikram Sathaye had tweeted, adding “we always knew you had a big heart”.
There are over 7 lakh active COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra at the moment, with number of active cases in the country closing in on 25 lakhs.
Harbhajan Singh is currently in Mumbai with the Kolkata Knight Riders squad. He was picked up by the franchise in the mini-auction ahead of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
The veteran spinner has featured in three of KKR’s four matches so far this season. He is however yet to pick up a wicket.
KKR won their first match of the season, against SunRisers Hyderabad, but slumped to three defeats after that, and are seventh in the table.
They will take on bottom placed Rajasthan Royals in their next game at the Wankhede stadium on Saturday.
