MUMBAI (92 News) – Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has on Monday revealed that Pakistan’s fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar had once bashed him and Yuvraj Singh inside a room. Talking in an Indian TV channel program, he said that Shoaib Akhtar abused him a lot. Since Shoaib was too close to them, maybe he used to take them for granted. “He challenged me once to hit a six and when I hit a six, he was shocked. He then bowled two consecutive bouncers which I evaded. He then abused me and I replied back. But after the game, we sat together as if nothing happened.” “Shoaib once threatened me he would come to my room and beat me. I told him come, let’s see who beats whom. I was really scared. He is a great hulk. He once bashed me and Yuvi (Yuvraj Singh) inside a room. Since he was heavy, it was difficult to catch him,” Harbhajan said.
