Who is Majeed, asks Yuvraj on Twitter

New Delhi:

Contrary to the claims made by Mazhar Majeed, the agent involved in spot-fixing controversy, India batsman Yuvraj Singh says he does not know know him.

"And who is majid!! absolute rubbish! Don't no never met," Yuvraj tweeted.

During the fourth day of the trial of Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, undercover investigative journalist Mazhar Mahmood, who exposed the alleged spot-fixing controversy, told the court that Majeed boasted he had access to world cricket stars like Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Chris Gayle, Brett Lee & Ricky Ponting.

"The problem in india is if some one says a rooster has given an egg it will become news!! Whether its true or not its doesn't matter," he wrote on his Twitter account.

While Yuvraj simply ridiculed the report of his name cropping up during the trial, Harbhajan threatened action.

"I don't know who this person is, I have never met him. We will definitely take some action against him. I don't know whether it will be a legal action or whatever," said Harbhajan in Nagpur where he is currently playing in the Challenger Series.

"But I will definitely bring it to BCCI's notice and I am sure that they will take the right kind of action against these kind people who are trying to spoil the game," added the feisty off-spinner.

The BCCI also rubbished the comments made by Majeed and said they were nothing but 'wild claims'. Ratnakar Shetty, CAO of BCCI, said: "BCCI does not think that this is important enough to be discussed because there is no allegation against any player as such."
