MUMBAI: Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has reportedly deleted a tweet from his official account, the one in which he ridiculed Sri Lanka over their recent performances — from defeat to Zimbabwe at home to struggles against India in the previous series.
Sri Lanka have arrived in India for a full tour comprising three Tests, three ODIs and thre Twenty 20 Internationals starting November 16. But for a team that lost each of their contests to the Virat Kohli-led team in their own backyard, Sri Lanka face a mountainous challenge on this tour.
The reports of taking help of ‘witchcraft’ to win a Test series against Pakistan in the UAE 2-0 but losing each of the limited-overs matches also showed Sri Lanka in poor light.
With India being absolutely dominant, the Dinesh Chandimal-led side could face some tough weeks ahead. They arrive in India on the back of 12 consecutive ODI defeats, their second-worst streak in history. Their last two series have resulted in back-to-back 5-0 whitewashes.
Perhaps what makes the matters even worse, Sri Lanka decided to drop their batting prodigy Kusal Mendis for this tour of India – their first since 2009-10.
Harbhajan highlighted Sri Lanka’s recent results in one of his tweets, but it was removed by the cricketer from his account later on.
