I just saw some breaking news on an Indian channel, there are reports of an incident during the Mumbai v Punjab IPL match where Harbhajan Singh apparently slapped Sreesanth, Yuvraj Singh describes it as an 'ugly incident', apparently Sreesanth was seen crying after the occurence, anyone has any additional info?

The Indian Premier League faced its first on-field controversy with allegations that Harbhajan Singh hit Sreesanth, his India team-mate and IPL rival, after Friday's match between the Kings XI Punjab and the Mumbai Indians in Mohali. While Yuvraj Singh, Sreesanth's captain, said Harbhajan had apologised after the incident, it remains to be seen how the IPL will handle it as a disciplinary issue.

Well it's up to these players and BCCI. No?

BCB and Ashraful set up the standard, and most of us accpeted it without any protest. Now do we really have any say what should BCCI do or don't? We had our chance to set an example, we didn't beacuse Ash is a superstar in Bangladesh. So is harbi in India in some sense.

I don't think either of them came out looking remotely good. Sree is out of control, but so is Harby. I am not 100% certain that Harby called Symmo a monkey back in Sydney (not that I agree with it being reported).

In a way, Harby responded the way I would respond to someone who said something that really bothered me - by first warning Sree not to do it again (if the HT article that said that Harby had warned Sree before the game to cut out the sledging or get a punch in the face is true) and secondly by slapping him in the mouth after the game. If Sree wants to sledge, fine - but he has to be prepared to back up his words and attitude if necessary, not cry like a little girl who's had her lollipop taken away lol. The way he was crying, I thought someone in his family had passed away. What a wusso!

That said, Harby needs to chill out. He's way too easy to stir up. I don't know how Sree's childish antics could have remotely offended anyone. I would have just laughed at him making a fool of himself. It's not like Sree insulted his mum or his race or anything like that. Besides, Harby does a fair bit of sledging himself.

So EPIC FAIL for both. :D

BCCI should show some spine and ban Harbachan for a good period of time.Sledging is one thing and hitting someone (be it a player or a fan) is another.Anything less than a couple of years I guess is less ...I would go for a life ban.Players are crossing their line too often ..first Shoib ( who got away with a some small fine) ..then to a lesser extent Ash ( who otherwise is such a mild and a decent guy) and now Harbachan.I guess too much money and ego is getting into these guys...

India can do without this 'weed' or prick ..I hope BCCI bans this guy for good.In a frenzy to emulate the Aussies India is learning the bad from them instead of the good .

So Harbhajan joined Ashraful in that club in quick succession. Looks like my favorite players are very good at slapping other people.

As for Sree, he needs to check his passport again to make sure his age and gender. (s)he sure can cry like a small kid.

'The Aussies should be worried I am coming' - Sreesanth. What a joker. Someone slaps him and he starts crying! :bravo:

If any one wants to see that, every incident can be portrait as different. Two incident cannot be same for any case, you can find something different.

In my mind, when a player hits a fan or vice versa its much more serious crime than when a player hits a player. Plus when the incident happens outside the game, its more criminal act than when it happens within the game. I don't know how they thread these two kinds in UK but thats the way they threat it here in USA. Hitting a pfan by a player or vice versa is a BIG NO NO in USA.

How does that justify Harbhajan's actions ? If it is alright slap an opponent player for sledging, all the Australian players and most of the Indian players would be hitting each other after every match. There is a certain line within which the players have to stay while playing the game - whether we like it or not, sledging is within it, and as far as I can understand, Sreesanth did nothing unusual, and certainly did not do anything barbaric comparable to what Harbhajan did in Australia.

Harbhajan should be send for a long holiday away from the game. Whether the BCCI will do anything because of politics and money is a different question.

scoilaheez
April 26, 2008, 02:19 AM
Harbajan is a loser, he is unneccessarily confrontational and oversteps the mark way too much. Hitting an opposition player is totally unacceptable. Seriously, if Sreesanth was CRYING then something serious had to have happened! No mere apology can cure the situation, he should be heavily fined and suspended for months. Compare hitting another player to what Shoiab said about the PCB... even though Shoiab's penalty was way too harsh, Harbajhan's actions are much worse.

Ashraful's one was equally wrong. Slapping a fan and slapping your team mate, both related to your game, and both related to cricket.

Sorry Miraz Vai,
could not agree. Hitting a fan is more heinous crime than hitting a player; hitting after practice is more heinous than in match. Harby hit Sres in the heat of the moment while in Ash's case it is premeditated as if he decided who call him ' Vua ' he would hit him. We should just keep our mouth shut because we sat a very bad precedence. Don't be surprised players start to hit other fans if some fan bad mouth. Because they know they could get away with it by paying some monetary penalty. BCB could do nothing as there is precedence of Ash.

Agreed to your core point.

IMO, the cases are different and I am not judging which one is more severe compared to the other.

Morally, hitting a fan after a practice session is defnitely more heinous crime compared to hitting a player, but legally, hitting a player in an official cricket match will bring more serious consequences. And that's what I am trying to point out here.

I hope you understand.

Harbhajan suspended from IPL

Mumbai/Mohali (PTI): Temperamental off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was on Thursday suspended pending his explanation for slapping his Indian teammate S Sreesanth at the end of an IPL match at Mohali on Friday night and appears headed for a severe punishment which can be a minimum of a ban for five Test matches or 10 one-day internationals.

Defintely disrespect or disregarding the fans, is more serious an offence. Specially today, it is the fans money that runs the game.

Hitting a players after the match, infront of the fans, is a multiple offense. 'Disrespecting the fans and hitting a player. That's why legally it's more serious. That player and his team has a fan following, it's an insult to them all. etc etc

I am not defending any one's action, but severity matters.

I am not sure about that. atleast not in USA. Thats what I am trying to tell you. Legally if a fight broke withing players, League take action, usually it doesn't go beyond that. But if a fight breaks between Fan and Player, its go beyond legaue legally its considered as assault like any other case. Plus League take additional action. Therefore in USA its more legally serious and complexed if there is a fight between Player and Fan.

btw both happened within the stadium compound.

It doesn't - but to be fair to Harby, he did warn Sreesanth that he was going to smack him one if he continued his nonsense, and Sreesanth continued his nonsense, so he got smacked one. The only thing I'd have done differently is to wait till both teams were back in the sheds, then I'd have challenged Sree to put up his fists or get slapped. Then when all parties had gotten the macho BS out of the system with a couple of black eyes all round, shake hands and go for a beer. End of story!

GOD!! he was crying like a 2 year old baby.. he seriously needs to get a hold on himself.. half of me wanted to burst out laughing.. the other half wanted to feel sorry for sreeshanth..

i want harbajan to get punished properly.. frankly speaking i don't like any of these players much.. so whatever happens.. i just want to see justice..

btw what exactly did sree say to bhajji??

i think sree just wanted to make a song and dance about it in front of the cameras, that's why he started crying..:-|
but harbhajan needs to calm down what a clown..check this out:

BHAJJI ON THE BACKFOOT

In 1997-98 Harbhajan was fined 50 per cent of match fee and given a one-match suspension for abusing Ricky Pointing.

In 2001-02 he was fined 75 per cent of match fee and again one-match suspension for showing dissent at umpire's decision and attempting to intimidate him.
In 2002-03 he was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for using abusive and foul language against the umpire.
Earlier this year he was fined 50 per cent of match fees for using obscene language against Andrew Symonds. However, he was cleared off charges of racially abusing him.

April 27, 2008, 08:15 PM
We are talking about two individuals that have serious problems. Harbhajan is what Hayden rightly described as "obnoxious weed". He has serious attitude problems.

On the other hand we have Sreesanth who has serious attitude + mental problems. He should be playing for Pabna Mental XI instead of Punjab XI.

Put these 2 together and you get entertainment unprecedented in the history of kirket.

sreesanth is a very immature and childish, albeit talented player. bhajji is an arrogant swine, and this is not his first incident. IMO, sree was only guilty of crying like a 4 year old girl. sure he was sledging, but thats a part of sport. so long as you keep mothers and sisters and wives, out of sledging...you need to be able to take it, especially if you lost like bhajji did.

bhajii is india's shoaib akhtar.

Anyway, this is the guy India went through all that drama threatening boycotts, defending his integrity during Australia tour. And now look what happens.

News came in, that slap will cost Harbhajan $600, 000 for missing out on remainder of the IPL. He will only get $100,000. This should probably go down in Guinness Book of World Record as the most expensive slap ever.

Behaviour during Tests 'was not great' (http://usa.cricinfo.com/ipl/content/current/story/347912.html)

Umpire rapped for Sreesanth remarks (http://usa.cricinfo.com/ipl/content/current/story/347945.html)

Make your own judgments. Cricketing parasites, as I like to call them.

I bet if any OZ player did this.....nothing would have happened...just like nothing happened to symonds even after he cursed at harbhajan...our tamim or aftab would probably not even talk back but atleast bhajji stood up.......us Asians always have this inferiority complex. Like our BD team can do without a foreign coach. I don't think it was fair to ban him for the entire tournament, especially after he apologized and sreesanth accepted his apology.

Growing pains. :)

Just couple of talented players letting the fame, the money, and media hype get to them. Seriously, who did not see this coming ? If BCCI had been true to themselves and put a leash on these two players (when they needed to), this incident could have been avoided. Instead, BCCI stood behind their childish antics both on and off the field. Money can't FIX everything.

So what's the update?

Did Sreesanth forgive Harbhajan for the slap? Or is he looking for a chance to take a "thapporer bodla thappor"?

BCCI bans Harbhajan for five ODIs (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/ipl/content/current/story/350990.html)
any further instance of misconduct will invoke a life-ban

i saw this on tv, very saddening event. my opinion:

Harbhajan: I have lost a lot of respect for him, i knew he was aggresive, slightly arrogant and obnoxious, but i always gave him benefit, because he played with a great sense of pride, and he wanted to win, which im sure any supporter is pleased to see any player have this attitude! However, slapping a team mate, because of some sledging? Slapping because of a loss, its a game after all!
From the pic above (thanks Fazal lol) they were good mates, totally uncalled for! i will still respect him, he hasnt sold his country yet (like Jadeja and Azhar), but he needs to control his temper, simple! He descibes himself as a "Sikh Warrior", however, even warriors in the army, fight with discipline, control and morals, which is why they, unlike him have much more respect!

Sreesanth: its finally happened hasnt it....i met this guy at a test match during and afterwards when he went shopping in town after the game. He was a pleasant guy, and off the field he is a cool guy. But he got what was coming, even a little brother gets a slap when he pisses a big brother off, Sreesanth needs to learn from this. It was sad to see him cry and even slightly embarrasing. The game after this incident, he was reported as "clapping the batsman after he hit a four, that too after he survived an LBW shout that was plumb. Hopefully, he is moving in the right direction!

Sree to Harbi “Harbi Da Mukh ta ektu ghuran… akta Appi dibo”


At the end of the day two things happened that will effect in near future and none of them are good for Indian Fans.

1) It reconfirmed what other non Indian Fans already knew i.e. Harbhajan often crosses the line in the heat of the game. This will be often exploited by the opponents .. they will often test Harbhajan's temper and hope he explodes again. This time with past baggage he will not get any benifit of doubt.

2) Sreesanth's advantage as agressive player is gone for good. Sreesanth's visual agressiveness will be often challenged and redeculed by the opponent players and he will be the butt of all jokes and his manhood will be challenged during sledging.


The only way these two can counter is keep their head cool and repy with good performance with the ball. In near future verbal agreesion will do them no good, actually take them to down hill.

In near term Inida needs to find two new BAD boys to counter opponent's sledging.
