‘Apologise for What?’ Harbhajan Rubbishes Symonds Claim of Breaking Down

Written by Vishwas Gupta

Harbhajan Singh has questioned Andrew Symonds’ claim that he “broke down crying” when the pair finally made up three years after the infamous “monkeygate” scandal in 2008. However, in a riposte on Twitter, Harbhajan dismissed the claim outright.

“Apologize? For what?” he wrote on his twitter handle.

According to Symonds’ version of events, Harbhajan approached Symonds at a social event during the IPL.

“We go to a very wealthy man’s place for a barbecue, drinks and dinner one night and the whole team’s there and he had guests there, and Harbhajan said ‘mate, can I speak to you for a minute out in the garden out the front’,” Symonds said.

“He goes, ‘look, I’ve got to say sorry to you for what I did to you in Sydney. I apologise, I hope I didn’t cause you, your family, your friends too much harm and I really apologise for what I said, I shouldn’t have said it’.

“And he actually broke down crying, and I could just see that was a huge weight off his shoulders, he had to get rid of it. We shook hands and I gave him a hug and said: ‘Mate, it’s all good. It’s dealt with’.”
