Harbhajan in problem yet again: Reports

New Delhi:

Harbhajan Singh could find himself in trouble again. The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that the bowler reportedly made monkey gestures towards the crowd in Sydney, which could get him into trouble with the ICC.

The paper says Harbhajan Singh apparently motioned as if to scratch his armpits with both hands in the same manner fans did to taunt Andrew Symonds in India last year.

The paper says Harbhajan Singh repeated the gesture with one hand later and was photographed.

Moreover, a spectator said Harbhajan also spat towards the Sydney Cricket Ground crowd after they called him "a wanker".

"He definitely made the monkey gestures and he spat towards us. It was a bit disgraceful really, especially after what happened here in the Test match (the allegation of racist slur by Harbhajan towards Andrew Symonds). Craig Woodbury, a spectator in the Bill O'Reilly stand, told the newspaper.

"There are a lot of young people sitting here and it was inappropriate. He is a role model to a lot of people. If he wants respect he has to treat others with respect. He is always going to cop it from the crowd but he is a professional sportsman and he has got to expect that."

Today's alleged incident occurred about 10 minutes after Harbhajan dismissed opener Matthew Hayden, who called him an "obnoxious little weed" on radio.
