Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has hit out at the country's media after news reports noted his wicket less bowling in Recent County Matches in England.
Harbhajan, out of India's team since an England tour last year, conceded 33 runs in 13 overs for no wickets while playing for Essex against Gloucestershire in a rain-affected 4-day match last week.
Indian media makes the news out of nothing. 3 days of region match gone in rain and they playing 'Bhajji gone wicket less'. Well done media, Harbhajan, who is recognized as Bhajji in India, wrote on Twitter last Friday.
Indian media is not anything but a joke. Worst part is the people believe what they write. Come on guys grow up. Stop put one guy down," he added.
The Indian spinner is also wicket less in a continuing match against Hampshire which started on Thursday. He bowled 28 overs for 73 runs on the opening day of the 4-day match in Chelmsford.
