Veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh has once again raised a number of eyebrows with his activity on social media. The India legend recently faced the heat for his reaction to the ‘wide controversy’ during the match between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
During the 19th over of SRH’s innings, umpire Paul Reiffel had decided against calling a delivery wide after seeing an angry MS Dhoni reacting in an animated manner. At first, it looked like he would call it a wide as he had his hands half out. However, he changed his mind at the last moment after seeing Dhoni protesting and decided against calling it a wide.
In the wake of the controversy, Dhoni is facing the heat with many slamming him for the “bullying” of Reiffel into changing his decision. Harbhajan Singh, however, saw the funny side of the incident.
Sharing a video of Reiffel changing his mind after seeing Dhoni’s reaction, Harbhajan Singh had captioned it with a series of laughing emojis. The fans, however, did not like it and slammed the off-spinner for his reaction. Many of them even said that it was a dig at MS Dhoni.
Harbhajan Singh’s cryptic tweet:
In the wake of the controversy, Harbhajan Singh has posted a cryptic tweet and one can say it could further make the fans angry. While he did not mention anyone in his tweet, the recent turn of events make things a bit clear as Harbhajan Singh tweeted:
“I learned a long ago never to Wrestle with a pig….You get dirty, and beside, the pig likes it”
I learned a long ago never to Wrestle with a pig….You get dirty, and beside, the pig likes it

Only Harbhajan Singh knows what he meant with his tweet but his latest action is surely not going to win him more fans. There are also reports suggesting that CSK are unlikely to retain him for the next edition of the IPL.
