Days after India’s most successful spin bowler Ravichandran Ashwin revealed how Virender Sehwag once made a mockery of India’s premier off-spinner Harbhajan Singh by smashing him for 12 sixes in a domestic match at Rohtak, off-spinner has rubbished this reports and termed it as faltu news.
Recently during a talk show, Ashiwn said: “I realised one fine day that it was his ego that you needed to bowl against. Because he gave me a very interesting story. He said he had fever in a game at Rohtak. And smashed Harbhajan for 12 sixes.
‘You know Harbhajan is a good off spinner.’ I said, ‘Yeah Harbhajan is a good off spinner.’ But that doesn’t mean you smoke him for 12 sixes with fever,” said Ashwin.
He further went on to add, “I even asked him for the story behind it. He said he opened the innings and hit him for 2 sixes and came back due to fever. He went in at number 10 and smashed for another 10 sixes. The wicket was spinning square, you know. I asked, ‘Sir, what did you do?’ He said, ‘Every ball because it was spinning, I decided to smack him over the leg side. He said that he hit him even from outside the pitch. Outside off stump and hit him for a six on the leg side.”
Reacting on this news, the Turbanator called its as ‘Faltu News’. He took to his twitter account to express his views.
