India vs Australia 1st Test: Did Harbhajan Singh target Virat Kohli and Co with his tweet?
Highlights

While the Turbanator seems to have shared a general thought which he often does on his Twitter feed, this time, it got fans thinking if he is targeting Virat Kohli and Co as the timing and the nature of the tweet somehow coincided with the team selection and struggles the Indian batsmen were experiencing in Australia.

New Delhi: Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is often found sharing thought-provoking messages on his Twitter account but this time with India’s horrible start to their Australia tour on Day 1 in Adelaide, fans have linked his tweet with team India's misery.

“Expecting & Trusting is never wrong. The only thing is we should know from whom to Expect and whom to Trust .. Good day friends,” Harbhajan tweeted on Thursday as Indian batsmen were struggling against the Aussies.

With KL Rahul being sent back in only the second over, and Murali Vijay and skipper Virat Kohli following him soon to the pavilion, India had a horrific morning session of the Day 1 of the first Test against Australia in Adelaide Oval. Despite putting some efforts, Ajinkya Rahane couldn't last long either and the visitors went 4 down for 41.

Ignoring Rohit Sharma for the Test series against West Indies by the BCCI selection committee was recently questioned by Bhajji. After putting up an impressive show with the bat in limited overs cricket, the 'Hitman' was selected in Adelaide.

By the end of the first session, the scoreboard read 56/4. Rohit Sharma was found hitting some ODI-like shots before being caught off the bowling of Nathan Lyon. Even though Cheteshwar Pujara continued to fight, half of the team went down for just 85 runs. Nevertheless to say, it seems like history is again repeating itself and India is enduring the same old fate.

Harbhajan had tweeted after seeing the score at the end of the first session. By the end of the day on Thursday, India managed to put  up a decent total thanks to Pujara’s brilliant century (123). India were 250/9 at stumps.
