Veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh on Monday ripped apart India’s cellular network Idea mobile. Harbhajan sent out a tweet accusing the mobile network of having hardly any knowledge about his contact details. He also claimed that he is one of their oldest customers, and should have known his contact details as it is their network and their mobile number. The tweet came following a tweet from Idea Customer care who apologised him for an inconvenience and asked him for his contact details to process his request of complaint further, to which Harbhajan was furious and sent out his outrageous tweet.

Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh is still uncertain if the new concept of playing day/night Test matches using pink balls will bear fruit in the long run for cricket’s traditional format. In a bid to revive and draw more crowds to the longest format, the International Cricket Council (ICC) introduced the concept of playing day/night Tests, with the first match being played between arch-rivals Australia and New Zealand in November 2015. The 35-year-old, however, is a bit sceptical about the sustainability of the day/night Tests but said there is no harm in giving it a shot, reported IANS.

“There is no harm in trying the pink ball in day/night Tests. Lets see how it turns out,” Harbhajan said at the launch of mobile sporting application ‘Ballr’ here on Thursday. “I have never played with the pink ball, so I won’t be able to say if it spins more or less. I don’t know if day/night Tests will continue to exist,” he added.

 

 

The Punjab tweaker, who warmed the bench during India’s limited overs tour to Australia, Asia Cup and the ICC World Twenty20, is however, optimistic of making it to the playing XI very soon, added IANS.
