Harbhajan Singh Accused of Racial Remark Amidst Heated Exchange with Andrew Symonds

VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar gave a strong performance at the beginning, both reaching hundreds, while Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly, two other experienced team members, reached the fifties. India had a solid start, but their middle order had a collapse that placed them in danger of losing a lead. However, Tendulkar persisted, and with the assistance of Harbhajan Singh (who hit 63), the two quickly put together a 129-run partnership for the eighth wicket that helped India finish with a score of 532/10. Harbhajan and Sachin Tendulkar were batting at the eighth wicket and had each reached 100 runs while collaborating effectively. Brett Lee delivered a terrific shot, and Harbhajan congratulated him afterward. However, Andrew Symonds then muttered something offensive into the microphone. When Harbhajan responded, the players got into a heated dispute. Harbhajan was charged with making a racial remark about Symonds by umpire Mark Benson, referring to him as a “monkey.”
