New Delhi: Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Saturday lashed out at Mathew Hayden, terming him the "biggest chicken hearted cricketer" he has ever seen and said the Australian's remarks against him for missing the Nagpur Test were "a lot of crap" to sell his book.
"I don't know what these Australian cricketers are up to? Even Ricky Ponting wrote a lot of crap to sell his book and now this guy Hayden is doing so," Harbhajan fumed while giving his reaction to PTI.
The former Australian opener in his autobiography "Standing My Ground" had said that erstwhile Indian captain Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan chickened out after having a look at the bouncy Nagpur strip during Australia's tour of 2004. He had even expressed his surprise in the manner in which Harbhajan had "food poisoning" on the eve of that Test which Australia won convincingly.
