Harbhajan’s former India teammate Yuvraj Singh took to social media to send a cheeky wish to the off-spinner.

“Is it your happy 40 or 47? Here’s a glimpse of the wonderful years spent together pulling each other’s leg, sometimes pants too. U have always proved to the world Singh u will always be King. After quarantine party to leni hai 100%. love u paaji (sic), Yuvraj said in his social media post.

Mohammad Kaif send a heartwarming birthday wish to Harbhajan, saying “Bhajji ‘turns’ 40! One of India’s greatest match-winners. Two-time WC winner & picked 711 wickets for India. First saw him in U-16 game in Panaji in 1996 & he looked special. Aggressive on the field but yaaron ka yaar. Janamdin ki dher saari shubhkaamnaaein.”
