New Delhi, Oct 12: Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh's comment of "tailor-made conditions for spinners" in the just concluded 3-Test series against New Zealand is drawing flak over social media.
People over micro-blogging site Twitter criticised The Turbanator who indirectly questioned the talent of India's frontline spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and instead gave the entire credit to the pitch.
Harbhajan, who had said before the series that Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble should avoid "rank turners", again took to the micro-blogging website Twitter during the 3rd Test to say the Indore pitch was suited for slow bowlers.
According to Harbhajan, he and Kumble could have had more wickets in Tests if they had got similar pitches that were seen in "last 4 years" in India.
Harbhajan's observation, perhaps, irked several Ashwin supporters as they took to twitter to troll him.
Here's how the veteran spinner was criticised:

@harbhajan_singh Instead of crying about the pitches, enjoy the fact that someone has taken your place and Indian Cricket is in good hand.— Naseem Ahmed (@naseem6270) October 10, 2016
@harbhajan_singh This is difference between you and Ashwin. you would have waited for 3 and half days, Ahswin already has 4 wkts on 3rd day.— Paddy (@Paddyyar) October 10, 2016
