Indian National Cricket Team spinner Harbhajan Singh took a dig at former Australia cricketer Andrew Symonds following his claim that the former broke down crying while apologizing to him four years later for the infamous Monkeygate of 2008. However, Tino Best came out of the blue to call out Harbhajan for not having any guilt.

We go to a very wealthy man’s place for a barbecue, drinks, and dinner one night and the whole team’s there and he had guests there, and Harbhajan said ‘mate, can I speak to you for a minute out in the garden out the front‘,” Symonds told Fox Sports in an interview on Sunday (December 16).

He goes, ‘look, I’ve got to say sorry to you for what I did to you in Sydney. I apologise, I hope I didn’t cause you, your family, your friends’ too much harm and I really apologise for what I said, I shouldn’t have said it,” he continues.

And he actually broke down crying, and I could just see that was a huge weight off his shoulders, he had to get rid of it,” he added.

Replying to Andrew Symonds’ claim, Harbhajan Singh slammed the Aussie cricketer labeling him as a good storyteller. He also urged him to grow up

I thought he was a very good cricketer but Symonds has turned out to be a good fiction writer – he sold a story then (2008) and he is ‘selling a story’ now (2018). Mate, the world has come of age in these 10 years and it’s time you also grew up,” he wrote on Twitter.

Following Harbhajan Singh’s denial, Tino Best joined the conversation calling out the Indian spinner for not having any repentance.

Who is this ??? Guys this guy looking for attention.. does anyone know who he is ??” Harbhajan responded.
