Mumbai:

The cricket board has told off-spinner Harbhajan Singh to stop talking to the media on the just concluded tour of Australia where he was involved in the racism controversy.

"Yes, we received a mail from Cricket Australia about Harbhajan Singh. He has been told not to talk to the media on the Australian tour. He has to accept our directive," BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said on Sunday.

Harbhajan was found guilty of using abusive remarks against Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds and was fined by the International Cricket Council-appointed judge John Hansen.

Harbhajan was called "a little obnoxious weed" by Mathew Hayden during the later part of the one-day tri-series for which the Aussie opener was reprimanded by Cricket Australia.

On his return to India, Harbhajan was quoted in the media as terming Hayden "a liar" and wicket keeper Adam Gilchrist "no saint", which he later denied.
