Bangalore: What connects Harbhajan and global warming? It's Kapil Sibal. The BCCI has enlisted the help of the man who represented India and other developing nations in talks over the Kyoto Protocol, in a bid to have the Turbonator's three-match ban overturned.
The composition of the legal team has not been finalised, but Harbhajan's case is reportedly being overseen by the country's two most powerful legal luminaries, Kapil Sibal and Arun Jaitley.
Sibal is India's minister for science and technology, who led the Indian delegation at the Bali summit on climate change. ICC appeals commissioner, New Zealand High Court judge John Hansen, and lawyers are expected to arrive in Adelaide during the Test.
Harbhajan is free to play until his appeal against the ban, for allegedly calling Andrew Symonds a 'monkey', is heard, after the match.
Ban on Bhajji may be overturned for want of proper evidence and the temperamental offie may be let off with a warning or fine, sources claim.
