New Delhi:I will not appeal against the ban - Harbhajan Singh to NDTV
We cannot ignore the incident this is time to send a strong message. There were previous incidents where Bhajji was pulled by the board or the ICC, so the board has to take cognition of all the incidents. - IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi
The Board should educate the players to conduct themselves though it's up to them how to use their money. - NCA chairman Ravi Shastri
I would verbally reprimand Bhajji and would say be graceful in defeat and gracious in victory. - Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan

Sreesanth did not make any comment on the verdict, but Bhajji hugged him and said, "I should not have done what I have done. We should not discuss the incident further." Both smiled for the cameras.
The most expensive slap in history?
What Harbhajan loses in terms of money: Harbhajan was to be paid $850 thousand for 14 IPL games, which is approx 3.4 crore. So he earns just 48 lakhs for two games that he plays and loses just under 3 crore. Of course he will lose more in terms of what international matches he could be banned for.
