Harbhajan opened his mouth by calling Symonds a monkey

Harbhajan Singh, a retired Indian cricketer, called Andrew Symonds a monkey during a tour of Australia in 2006. The 41-year-old cricketer has opened his mouth about the incident after retirement.

In an interview to Indian media PTI, Harbhajan said, “The whole thing was not at all desirable. What happened in Sydney that day and what happened as a result was never desirable. The whole thing was pointless. But forget who said what. We all know that there are always two different sides to the truth. No one was interested in knowing my truth. I never said much about it. But people will be aware of this through my autobiography. The things I had to face, no one else had to face. ‘

India’s Harbhajan bids farewell to all forms of cricket on Friday (December 24). He informed about this decision in a message through social media. He was last seen playing in a Kolkata Knight Riders jersey. He last played for India in March 2016. And this spinner will not be seen at 22 yards. He announced the end of his 23-year tour.

Harbhajan wrote on Twitter, ‘All good things end one day. Today I am saying goodbye to a game that has given me everything in my life. Many thanks to everyone who has made this long journey of 23 years beautiful and memorable. ‘

He also posted a video on YouTube announcing his retirement. There, Harbhajan said, “Whenever I went down to play after the Indian jersey, there was no greater inspiration than that. But there comes a time when you have to make some difficult decisions in life. Life is moving forward. For the past few years I have been wanting to make an announcement. I was wondering when I would share this moment with you. Today (Friday) I am retiring from all forms of cricket. Maybe I retired a long time ago. But I could not announce it.

Harbhajan took 418 wickets in 103 Tests for India with a strike rate of 7.5. He took 269 wickets in 238 ODIs. He also has 25 wickets in 26 T20 matches for the country. He is the 14th all-time leading scorer in Test cricket. Only five of the spinners are in front of him. They are Ashwin, Rangana Herath, Anil Kumble, Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan. Harbhajan has 150 wickets in 163 matches in the IPL. He is the fifth highest wicket taker in the IPL.

Against India on the stage of the World Cup, Pakistan has always revolved around a losing circle. However, this time they have been freed from this circle. Not only that, they have blown India away by 10 wickets. Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh scoffed at Pakistan before facing them in the World Twenty20. However, after losing to India, Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir stabbed him.
