Harbhajan Singh & Virender Sehwag
Perhaps, for the first time, the two cricketers were seen cheering for another team instead of fans cheering in them. Both Sehwag and Harbhajan were nearly mobbed by over-enthusiastic fans. Along with Harbhajan Singh was seen his rumored squeeze Geeta Basra. All those wedding rumors might not really be untrue after all.
