Harbhajan hits out at crowd behaviour


Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has lashed out at Australian crowds after being cleared of allegations he made monkey gestures and spat toward fans in the tri-series final win against Australia.

Harbhajan was cleared after match referee Jeff Crowe was unable to find any video evidence to confirm the claims by spectators and photographers. The spinner was shielded from the media when India arrived in Brisbane on Monday to prepare for Tuesday’s second match in the tri-series finals, but The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported Harbhajan was appalled by the abuse he got from the crowd.

“Trust me, I didn’t say anything to the crowd, but the language they said to me was despicable,” he told The Daily Telegraph. “It crossed all limits of decency. I had smoke coming out of my ears.” The outspoken spinner has been public enemy No.1 with Australian fans and players since clashing with Andrew Symonds in India last year.
