New Delhi, May 26: Harbhajan Singh is known for being the most aggressive cricketers in Indian cricket team and who might have forgotten the infamous 'monkey gate' issue.

India's veteran off-spinner has always been in the news for his aggression and altercations on field with opposition players, especially with Australians.

In an exclusive chat with Vikram Sathaye on show 'What The Duck', the Turbanator revealed how he once tackled the sledging by the Australians, who are known to be master sledgers.

The Turbanator recalled how once Darren Lehmann, who was fielding at short leg, was trying to break his concentration through sledging when the former was batting during a match at Bangalore.

Harbhajan went on saying that as Lehmann continued to speak, he looked at his tummy and asked, "Are you pregnant?"

Lehmann was upset with Bhajji's comments and started abusing him. When he began his spell in the next innings, he silenced the Aussies with a seven-wicket haul which forced Glenn McGrath to give a statement next day where he asked his team-mates to stop provoking Harbhajan, as he was only getting better.
