Former Pakistan pacer Umar Gul has taken a cheeky dig at former Indian bowler Harbhajan Singh as he recently praised his abilities with the bat. Umar Gul feels that he is a better option than Harbhajan Singh, in terms of batting.
Recently, Gul revealed the same in a video shared by the official Twitter handle of Legends League Cricket (LLC) 2022. In the video, Umar Gul can be seen answering a few questions, during which, he was asked to pick the better batter between him and Harbhajan.
Responding to the question, Umar Gul recalled his Player of the Match performance against Proteas as a batter in the T20 World Cup 2012. Calling himself a better batsman, Umar said:
“Harbhajan Singh has also batted well, but I have won a Player of the Match in a World Cup game for my batting. So, it means that I am better than Harbhajan Singh when it comes batting.”

For the unversed, Umar Gul played a stunning knock of 32 runs off 17-balls to help his team win the match against the South African side during the 2012 T20 World Cup.
