Chandigarh, October 27
It was an ugly spat between Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir, which continued till early Wednesday on Twitter.
They two cricketers exchanged as many as eight tweets while taunting each other, with Harbhajan telling Amir that “for people like you, only paisa matters no izzat.”
The two were taking digs at each other three days after Pakistan win over India in their opening game of the 2021 T20 World Cup.
The feud started with Harbhajan responding to a tweet by Amir from October 25, where the latter had made fun of the former over Pakistan's 10-wicket win over India.

In response, Harbhajan shared a video from the 2010 Asia Cup, where he had hit the winning runs for India against Pakistan off the bowling of Amir.
Amir hit back by sharing a video of a 2006 Test match in Lahore where Shahid Afridi had hit Harbhajan for four consecutive sixes.

Here Harbhajan reminded the former Pakistan pacer of his involvement in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal in the Lord's Test against England.
"Lords mai no ball kaise ho gya tha ?? Kitna liya kisne diya ? Test cricket hai no ball kaise ho sakta hai ? Shame on u and ur other supporters for disgracing this beautiful game," Harbhajan tweeted. ("How was there a no ball at Lord's? How much did you take (and) who paid you? How can someone deliver a no ball in Test cricket?"
