Twitter calls Harbhajan Singh 'Cricket ke Kejriwal' after he takes a jibe at Indore pitch

New Delhi: One of India' finest spinners ever, Harbhajan Singh hasn't appreciated the nature of wickets currently being prepared in India. The offie took a subtle dig at the Holkar stadium pitch ahead of 1st day's play of third test between India and New Zealand.

Bhajji tweeted, "(the pitch) Already looks like 2 days old pitch before the 1st bowl is predictions match won't go more then 3 and half days.."

After 2 days of play a fan asked Harbhajan on twitter about his predictions for the match since two days are already over, to which the off-spinner replied,

"Sabr kar 3 and half day Mai bada waqt hai abhi.pitch already spinning a lot #tailormadeconditionsforspinners don't think NZ can bat for long", said Bhajji.

Then came another fan asking the Turbanator why he didn't question about the nature of pitch during the 'Ind vs sa, Kanpur Test in 2008 and Ind vs Aus Test in Mumbai 2004?'.

Harbhajan replied, "Only 2 in my 103 tests.. Kumble and my test wicket count would have been something else if we got wickets like last 4 years we playing on"

As India went on to claim the series 3-0 with Ravichandran Ashwin turning out to be India's chief architect in the emphatic triumph, Harbhajan Singh's tweets faced severe backlash on Twitter.

He was even nicknamed as "Cricket's Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi Chief Minister) for complaining so much.

Virat Kohli too played down the nature of pitch in Indian spinners' performance against New Zealand, saying if it was so then Kiwi spinners should also have performed the way Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja did.
