Harbhajan cleared of racism charges

January 30, 2008

Spinner Harbhajan Singh has been cleared of racial abuse after the charges against him were dropped on Tuesday.

Harbhajan was originally suspended for three matches by match referee Mike Procter after being found guilty of racially abusing Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds during the second Test.

  • How Harbhajan escaped the ban?
  • The more serious charge of racial abuse had been downgraded to a lesser charge of using abusive language at Tuesday's appeal hearing in Adelaide and Harbhajan was fined 50 per cent of his match fees.

    Harbhajan's appeal was heard by ICC-appointed Appeals Commissioner Justin John Hansen for nearly five hours.
