Mumbai: Harbhajan Singh was conspicuous by his absence while India faced England in the third ODI at Mohali on Thursday. The off-spinner may have taken the ODI axe in his stride, but not his childhood coach Davinder Arora. He was hurt and as a result, drove back to Jalandhar from Mohali without watching the day-night encounter at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium.
"Ghar me function ho raha hai aur ghar ka main aadmi nahi hain. Kaisa lagega aap ko? That's why I am going back to Jalandhar. I don't feel like going to the ground. I cannot believe Harbhajan is not playing in Mohali," Arora told MiD DAY while driving back home on Thursday.
Criticising the selectors' decision to drop the Turbunator, Arora rated him India's best spinner after Anil Kumble. "I don't know what happened to the selectors, it's absolute injustice. After Kumble, he is India's number one bowler. I am not saying that because he is my student, but everybody has said that he is a true match-winner," Arora stressed.
