Next, Harbhajan shares an anecdote of how Inzamam got out on both occasions – not stopping the ball and it got hit on the pad; and stopping the ball when someone throws it. On both occasions, he was declared out by the umpire. Later, at the press conference Inzaman speaks of not understanding why he was out in both cases – stopping and no stopping bringing laughter. Dadi marks her entry and starts speaking on mobile with a young guy Babblu who is learning cricket and needs a bowling coach. She first informs him that Bhajji is an apt choice. Dadi informs him that she has taught Bhajji the Doosra since he used to get out in the first (pehla). This brings smile on Harbhajan’s face.
Dadi then learns that a fast bowler is needed instead of a spin bowler and then goes ahead to put forward the name of Shoaib and refers to him as Shobu. She then opens-up to Babblu on how she taught Shoaib in running after taking a wicket. She depicts Shoaib’s standard running scene and repeats it another time. Dadi soon discovers Shoaib there and teases him by calling loafer (Luccha in hindi). She goes on to compliment him in her usual way and even pampers him. Soon, Bittu discovers that Dadi is carrying some personal belongings in a sack and takes it out. He finds a small plastic water vessel and other belongings with her and pulls her leg. Harbhajan signs an autograph on Dadi’s water vessel. She then takes out a long underwear/boxer shorts and suggests it belonging to Inzamam on lighter note. She asks Shoaib to give her the autograph on it quickly since Inzamam can come back at any moment. Shoaib signs on it followed by Bhajji. Dadi keeps her things back in the sack and leaves while riding a bicycle.
