Mohali, Apr 26 : Reconciliation between Mumbai Indians captain Harbhajan Singh and Punjab Kings XI paceman Sreesanth came after Harbhajan apologised for his behaviour in the dressing room after the end of Indian Premier League (IPL) match in Muhali last evening.
Sreesanth also played down the incident saying Bhajji was like an elder brother for him. "Harbhajan is like my brother and these kinds of incidents are normal," said the pace-bowler
Harbhajan too claimed that nothing serious has happened and that Sreesanth is like his brother.
After the IPL match between Punjab's Kings XI and Mumbai Indians last evening, Harbhajan had allegedly hit Sreesanth. The fast bowler, who otherwise is known for his on-the-field aggression, was seen crying bitterly on the ground after the incident.
Off-spinner Harbhajan, however, had a long chat with Sreesanth in the dressing room of the Punjab team and apologised for his behaviour.
Reacting to the incident, Kings XI Punjab captain Yuvraj Singh said, "This is really an ugly incident. You do not want to see such things off the field especially after such a win. I am pretty upset at what has happened. This is totally unacceptable."
This was Punjab Kings XI's first victory in three IPL matches, beating Mumbai Indians convincingly by 66 run victory.
