Camera is 'provoked' Harbhajan's new target!

Camera is 'provoked' Harbhajan's new target!

Harbhajan Singh taking a swipe at a cameraman in Bangalore
The feisty off-spinner, who very often finds himself in the news for all the wrong reasons, jabbed at a camera after the camera had hit him on the head while he was taking his luggage out from a car before entering the airport.
Harbhajan gave an angry stare at the cameraman even as security personnel tried to push back the hordes of lensmen who had virtually mobbed the cricketer.

The 29-year-old Punjab spinner has a rather dubious disciplinary record, having been penalised for various offences during his career.

Harbhajan was accused of racially abusing Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds in Sydney and the 2007 ‘monkey-gate’ incident snowballed into a major crisis, threatening to tear apart the cricketing world.

In the same year, Harbhajan was banned for the remaining Indian Premier League matches after the infamous ‘slap-gate’, which saw him slapping his India teammate S Sreesanth in Mohali.

After the ‘slap-gate’ incident, Harbhajan had promised to mend his way and keep a check on his temper.

Air India to the rescue

National carrier Air India, on Wednesday operated a special flight on the Chennai-Bangalore-Colombo sector to facilitate travel of the Indian team, earlier booked for travel by Jet Airways, adds DHNS in Bangalore.

While most of the squad boarded the aircraft in Chennai, captain MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan, R P Singh and Suresh Raina joined them in Bangalore after Tuesday night’s Corporate Trophy final here.

Air India decided to operate the special flight so as to ensure that the team did not have to go through anxious moments resulting from cancellation of Jet Airways flights ahead of their tri-series opener in Colombo on Friday against New Zealand.
