Harbhajan Singh on Wednesday took on former Australia wicket-keeper Adam Gilchrist, asking him to "stop crying" over his dismissal during the off-spinner's famous hat-trick at Eden Gardens in the historic Kolkata Test in 2001.

The famous test will be remembered for India's comeback win, after being asked to follow on but also for young Harbhajan's performance. Gilchrist was the second man to be dismissed leg before wicket, but replays showed the ball was hitting his bat first.

The banter started after Jasprit Bumrah became the third Indian and 44th overall to register a hat-trick during the second Test match against West Indies at Jamaica. Bumrah’s hat-trick ball was given not out but a review overturned the decision. After Bumrah’s hat-trick, videos of Harbhajan and Irfan Pathan’s hat-trick started doing the rounds.

There was no Decision Review System (DRS) during those days and Gilchrist, who was on of the best wicketkeeper-batsman at that time  tweeted: "No DRS on top of the video of Harbhajan's hat-trick." He also added a sad emoticon.

In reply, Harbhajan said: "U think u would have survived for long if not first ball? Stop crying over these things mate..thought u would talk sense after ur playing days.. but few things never change u r the prime example of that. Always crying (sic)," the 39-year old World Cup winner tweeted.

He, however, deleted the tweet later 

Harbhajan became the first Indian to take a Test hat-trick as he took the wickets of Ricky Ponting, Gilchrist and Shane Warne to finish with figures of 7/123.  He also picked up six wickets in the second innings helping India register an epic win over Australia by 171-run.
