The BCCI has been extremely influential in bringing change in the domestic circuit with regards to preparing a sporting pitch. Hence over the years, we have witnessed a lot of pace assisting pitches and less rank turners in domestic cricket. Saba Karim who is the head of Cricket Operations asserted that so far in the ongoing Ranji Trophy, the curators had done a brilliant job.

However, Harbhajan Singh stirred an unwanted controversy over the same. The Indian off spinner raised a concern over pitches in international cricket. Whether it was oversight or lack of knowledge, the player ended up blurting that due to rank turners, every game in India was getting done within three days since the last 5 years.

The Turbanator went on rambling as he quoted Saba Karim’s statement and asked if he took pride in that. However, Twitter was quick to give the Chennai Super Kings cricketer a reality check. A number of people confronted him with statistics while others engaged in trolling him apart. In reality, only 4 of the last 19 Tests in India have ended in three days.

Here’s his tweet

Harbhajan last featured in an international game against UAE in the Asia Cup almost three years ago. Spin duo Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja took over from him after the 2011 World Cup. Right now, there are wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav at the helm. Hence it’s unlikely that Bhajji will ever play for India again.

While many people called him out for jealousy against the current spinners, others felt he should start watching some cricket. Harbhajan had even made a controversial statement during the Windies series. The cricketer had questioned if the Caribbeans were good enough to even make it to the quarterfinals of India’s premier domestic competition, i.e. Ranji Trophy.
