Melbourne: IPL board member I S Bindra has cautioned Harbhajan Singh, saying the temperamental off-spinner needs to improve his on-field behaviour or else his cricket career will come to an end.

''There is no question for any repetition, we cannot have tolerance of any repeat actions of this nature,'' Bindra told The Herald.

He added that Harbhajan's on-field behaviour will be closely monitored from now on.

''Once punished for such an offence, a player cannot make the same indiscretion again,'' he added.

Meanwhile, former Australian Test umpire Lou Rowan also came down harshly on Harbhajan saying its time to get rid of him and the spinner is not regarded well amongst other players.

''This fellow (Harbhajan) doesn't belong to the game of cricket. He has shown he is no good. They should just get rid of him from the sport,'' Rowan was quoted as saying by 'The Courier Mail'.

''I don't know what other sport would want him, though,'' he said.

Rowan, who stood in 25 Tests between 1963 and 1971, added that Harbhajan got away with a lighter punishment and deserved a much bigger one than the 11-match ban.

''I certainly don't think he would have been allowed to get away with what he has been allowed to get away with in any other sport. They should just get rid of him and move on,'' he said.
