Harbhajan mocks SL cricketers in a tweet



Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has mocked the visiting Sri Lankan team citing their recent performances against Zimbabwe.

Harbhajan in a tweet has reacted to a comment from Sri Lankan batsman Dimuth Karunaratne spoke about negating the threat of Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the upcoming Test series.

"I know Jadeja and Ashwin are both hungry for wickets. Every time they bowl it's about sticking to the basics. If I don't give them any chance, they will try to do something else. If we need them to change the field you have to do something extra," he said.

The Sri Lanka opener scored 285 runs, including a valiant 141 in the second innings of the first Test against India two months ago.

"That's my game plan... I wait for the loose ones and I will stick to that. If it does not work I will think out of the box and give some extra pressure to the bowlers," Karunaratne told reporters after day one of their tour match against Board President's XI,

"Same way how they did in recent series.. they r getting beaten by Zimbabwe.. 1st inn 200 second inn 150. Sri Lankan team at their lowest so sad to see them like this.. hope they will revive and get to international level," tweeted Harbhajan in response to the Sri Lankan's comment.

However, a little later he had deleted his comments.

But Harbajan’s facts on Sri Lanka – Zimbabwe Test was wrong.  In that match, played at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo in July, Sri Lanka won the Test by 4 wickets.
