Chennai Super Kings cricketer Harbhajan Singh shared a picture comparing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsman Brendon McCullum's ramp shot with famous Lagaan character 'Gurran Baba''s shot in the movie.
The picture was from RCB's match against Mumbai Indians (MI) which they won 14 runs. Batting first RCB scored 167 thanks to contributions from Manan Vohra (45), McCullum (37) and Virat Kohli (32).
Kiwi batsman McCullum played the shot off Hardik Pandya which raced to the boundary. Comparing the two shots with fun intended, he wrote, “Who did better ?? Lagaan is back now in the colorful kit …it’s on TV everyday 8 to 11.30 on @StarSportsIndia,????????."
Not only fans, even Rashid Khan had a laugh about it.
