Harbhajan Singh was involved in a major controversy during the first IPL edition. He slapped S Sreesanth, who was a part of the Punjab Kings. The pacer was seen crying on the field.
Bhajji was banned for the remainder of the season. But with the passage of time, the bond between the two players got better, who played together during India’s title-winning campaigns in the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup.
Harbhajan has recalled the slag gate, admitting he made a mistake that left him ’embarrassed.’
“What happened was wrong. I made a mistake. Because of me, my teammate had to face embarrassment. I was embarrassed,” Harbhajan said at Glance LIVE Fest.
“If I had to correct one mistake. I shouldn’t have treated Sreesanth like that. I feel there was no need.”
