Sympathising with Harbhajan Singh after the slapping controversy, Australian spin wizard Shane Warne has offered to help the off-spinner in any way he could.

Warne said Harbhajan should be appreciated for the fact that he admitted his mistake of slapping speedster Sreesanth.

"Everyone has issues - on and off the field," Warne said. "He has admitted to his mistake, which is a huge thing. And when he returns to play for India, it'll be a different Bhajji," the legendary spinner was quoted as saying in The Australian.

Warne said if Harbhajan wanted to seek his advice about the slapping incident or any other topic then he would be glad to assist the Indian bowler.

"I'm ready to help Bhajji if he wants to talk about it, or in any other way," added Warne, who is the captain-cum-coach of the Rajasthan Royals side in the ongoing Indian Premier League.

Warne's words of sympathy have came after Ricky Ponting's scathing attack of the offie. Commenting about the slapping incident, the Australian captain had said that Harbhajan has been "unmasked" and "people should be making their own judgments about him. He has again done something wrong."
