Harbhajan vs Symonds

Written by Commoner on January 9th, 2008   (1,011 views)

After slashing the minnow Pakistan at home, India bombastically went to Australia riding high on the balloon. They were promptly brought back to the ground by competent and talented Aussies in a jiffy. Indians were as usual livid when mirror was shown to them.

In their desperate attempt to save some face, Indian players started calling names to the host team’s players and also voiced their grave apprehensions about the officials supervising the games. When things really went ugly, Ricky Ponting lodged complain with the match referee and umpires on ground vetted it, and the Indian players were proved guilty and got the charge sheet with punishment.

Then all hell broke lose in the Indian media, who couldn’t just take it. Cricket Board of India also joined the fray and started giving lame excuses in the defense of its arrogant players. They threatened to back off from the series, which Australians didn’t pay any attention to. Then they themselves backtracked and started whining in front of ICC.

In a blatant lie, Harbhajan denies any such charges, and said that he didn’t even call a name to a wasp throughout his life, and he was as innocent as Nirendra Modi. Whereas Mike Proctor has some slightly different views,” I am satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Harbhajan Singh directed that word at Andrew Symonds and also that he meant it to offend on the basis of Symonds’ race or ethnic origin.”

Wild rumors and changing events coupled with the volleys of statements from both sides also fueled the matter and it was blown out of proportions. Sardar Turbanator has been a chronic racist and has got a big foul mouth which reeks of stupidity and arrogance. When he called Andrew Symonds a “Monkey”, Symonds was astonished at the title, as Symonds didn’t for the life of him believed that Harbhajan was “Brad Pitt” himself.

      I cant belive
      even you people take side of australians
      dont you remember how they cheated from the first day till the last one
      enen the umpires supported them and cheated alon with them.
      sydney test was INDIA’s match if australians wouldnt have cheated.

      and how can you forget what Australians say before the match for opposition team.
      they say all possible il things against the opposition team and then they call it mental game.
      If this is a mental game is only australia is allowed to play that.
      And what happened to australia’s saying ‘what happens in ground should remain on ground’.
      Is this true only till australians are saying, when things go against them then this saying goes wrong.

      Mr. Mirza atleast try to jot down the name of the person when u write(thas not Nirendra… its Narendra). Evidently u sound to be one soul who has his bottom impaled on a giant Australian Cactus and thats what makes you a biased illogical person.
