Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has been in the news for his antics on and off the field. Recently, he was once again in the middle of another controversy when he complained about losing his bat from his cricket kit on his way from Mumbai to Coimbatore. He is all set to team up with the Chennai Super Kings for the thirteenth season of the Indian Premier League.
The Turbanator admitted that he discovered about his missing bat as soon as he landed at the Coimbatore Airport on an Indigo airlines flight. Harbhajan Singh also added in a statement that having last used it in a practice session in Juhu; he cannot conclude whether it is missing or stolen. The authorities have been contacted and have promised to have a look into the issue.
“As soon as we landed in Coimbatore, I saw that one bat was missing. I do not know about the whereabouts of my bat, I cannot say that it has been stolen. I don’t know whether it is related to the baggage thing or not, the bat is my primary thing. I play with that in the IPL. I last used it in a practice session in Juhu. I have complained to the authorities as the bat is important. Indigo guys have told me they would look into the matter, I hope they will do the needful.” Harbhajan said as quoted by ANI News.
Furthermore, Harbhajan Singh claimed that despite opting for an additional baggage package already, the authorities charged them extra Rs 1200. The out of bound India spinner also said that they had rejected to pay the same to the authorities.
“But my kit was not opened after practice, we had opted for the 35 KG extra baggage package. At the airport, the authorities told me that we are having extra baggage package and they asked us for extra 1200 rupees, but my team did not pay the amount as we had already opted for extra baggage package,” he added further.
Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh will once again reunite with his Chennai Super Kings as they look to lift their fourth IPL title. Meanwhile, Harbhajan shifted his base from Mumbai to Chennai after plying his trade for Mumbai Indians for ten long years.
