Matthew Hayden has stirred already troubled waters by calling Harbhajan Singh an “obnoxious weed”, a comment that will only serve to further deepen the animosity between the two sides which has surfaced during India’s current tour.
Speaking on a Brisbane radio station, Hayden said: “It’s been a bit of a long battle with Harbhajan, the first time I ever met him he was the same little obnoxious weed that he is now. His record speaks for itself in cricket.
“There is a certain line that you can kind of go to and then you know where you push it and he just pushes it all the time. That’s why he has been charged more than anyone that’s ever played in the history of cricket.”
The pair clashed during Sunday’s CB Series game at the SCG when the Indians complained that Hayden had called Harbhajan a “mad boy”.
Hayden played down the incident, accusing the Indians of complaining because “they are losing every game they are playing,” adding: “I called him a bad boy.”
“He took offence to that,. I thought that was quite funny. I said mate, you should be flattered, it’s a clothing range.”
