During the conversation, Watson asked Harbhajan how old he was during the 2001 Australia tour.
To this, the off-spinner replied, “18”.
Watson laughed and asked whether he was talking about his ‘cricket age’ or birth age.
Bhajji couldn’t control himself and burst into laughter and asked Watson: “Did you spend lot of time with Afridi?”
Watson replied: “He (Afridi) has been 36 for about 7 years. That’s a great effort.”
Harbhajan tried to make the topic more interesting and said: “I will tell you a story. Me and Yuvraj have played a lot of cricket together. Under-14, U-16, U-19, I got overage and Yuvraj still continued to play.”
Watson recalled the days when he played against Yuvraj.
“I have played against Yuvraj in Under-19 World Cup. He scored 50 odd runs off 20 balls. A year later, he played Champions Trophy in Kenya. He was so dominating,” Watson said.
Without wasting time, Harbhajan jokingly said: “He (Yuvraj) is also like Afridi.”
Yuvraj Singh, who is currently out of the India cricket team, played for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018.
Harbhajan Singh and Shane Watson were the part of the Chennai Super Kings team who lifted the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 title, defeating SunRisers Hyderabad by eight wickets in the summit clash at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on May 27.
