The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) spinner Harbhajan Singh got a really humiliating treatment from Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) opening batsman KL Rahul. Harbhajan, who picked up three wickets in the match against KXIP, was smashed for plenty of runs in his initial overs.

It was Rahul who absolutely destroyed Harbhajan in his first two overs. In the first over, the KXIP opener hit him for a couple of sixes. Even Chris Gayle hit him for a four on the first ball. 

The real carnage was in the second over, which was just fourth over of the match. Rahul collected 24 runs off the over, hitting Harbhajan for couple of more sixes and three consecutive fours.

Twitter was having fun as Harbhajan was spanked by Rahul. The fans remembered what the veteran India bowler had said about Rahul after he was trapped in the Koffee with Karan controversy.

"I will not travel with these two guys in the bus if my daughter or my wife are travelling in the team bus with me. How would they feel? You are looking at women in only one angle and that is not right," Harbhajan had said.

Harbhajan ended with figures of 3/57 in his four-over quota. However, it was too late for CSK to get those three wickets and turn the game. KXIP won the game by 6 wickets to end their season on a high.
