What he said:
“The problem in India is if some one says a rooster has given an egg it will become news!! Whether it’s true or not it doesn’t matter."
Yuvraj Singh is livid that bookie Mazhar Majeed named Harbhajan Singh and him among the cricketers he had ‘access’ to.
Majeed and Pakistani fast bowler, Mohammad Asif, are on trial in a London court facing spot-fixing charges in a betting scam.
The News Of The World broke the sensational expose with footage of meetings between intrepid reporter Mazhar Mehmood and the crooked bookie.
"And who is Majid!! Absolute rubbish! Don’t no (sic), never met!”
The next tweet compared Majeed to a rooster practically terming his ‘lie’ a cock-and-bull story.
Harbhajan Singh was equally furious speaking to reporters in Nagpur:
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 legal action or whatever.
But I will definitely bring it to the BCCI’s notice and I’m sure they’ll take the right kind of action against these kind people who are trying to spoil the game.
What he really meant:
“Sensationalism first, fact-finding later. That’s the name of the game.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“This rooster (Mazhar Majeed) laid some golden eggs for us (Harbhajan Singh and me).”
