Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is one of the bowlers India has produced. The off-spinner, famously known as the ‘turbanator’ was the first Indian bowler to take a Test match hat-trick, which he claimed at the expense of the mighty Aussies during that unforgettable Test in Eden Gardens in 2001.
Harbhajan claimed more than 650 wickets during the course of his celebrated International career. The off-spinner, who last played for India back in 2016 is currently a part of the Indian Legends outfit-led by Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar in the Road Safety World series.
On Saturday, Harbhajan was travelling from Mumbai to Coimbatore in Indigo where he happened to lose his cricket bat. The off-spinner took to his Twitter account to post the complaint to the official handle of Indigo where he wrote: “Yesterday I Travelled from Mumbai to Coimbatore by @IndiGo6E flight number 6E 6313 indigo airlines and I find a bat is missing from my kit bag!! I want action to be taken to find who this culprit is..going into someone’s belongings and taking any item is THEFT.Plz help @CISFHQrs”

One of the customer care executives at Indigo immediately got in touch with the off-spinner and wrote: “Sorry to know about this, Mr. Singh. Let us get this checked immediately and connect with you. ~Snigdha”
Harbhajan Singh lashes out at selectors for ignoring domestic performers
Meanwhile, Harbhajan recently lashed out at the selectors for ignoring consistent performers in domestic cricket like Jalaj Saxena and Wakhare.
“There is a spinner named Jalaj Saxena (347 FC wickets and 6334 FC runs). They just refuse to consider him. He has been bowling superbly for so many seasons. Wakhare (279 wickets in 83 FC games) is a consistent bowler but no one looks at him. And then you say, spinners are getting lost in Indian cricket. He must have done something good for Vidarbha to have won the Ranji Trophy twice,” he was as quoted by Sportstar.
Bhajji even questioned the selectors move to repeatedly pick a guy like Washington Sundar ‘who doesn’t even spin the bowl’
“They pick this guy called Washington Sundar, who doesn’t even spin the ball. I just don’t get it. Why don’t you encourage a bowler who bowls genuine spin, who can lure the batsman out and have him stumped? If Washington can bat a bit, so can Jalaj, who is also a proper spinner,” the off-spinner further added.
