Bangalore, Jul 20: Offspinner Harbhajan Singh took to twitter to slam country's media by calling "Indian media is nothing but a joke" after reports of him being wicketless in a county match in England were published.
Harbhajan, who is currently playing for Essex, was furious with the media after he failed to take a wicket in 13 overs during his first couny game this season for Essex against Gloucestershire last week.
Reports of him going wicketless were carried in Indian media which has upset the offspinner who is trying to come back to the Indian team.
On Thursday, in another four-day game against Hampshire, Harbhajan's unsuccessful stint continued. He bowled 28 overs for no wicket.
"Indian media makes the news out of nothing.3 days of county game gone in rain and they playing bhajji gone wicketless.welldone media," Harbhajan (harbhajan_singh) wrote on the micro blogging site.
"worst part is the people believe what they write. Come on guys grow up.stop putting one guy down.don't do this c**p stories.stay away media," he added.
In his final tweet on the issue, he wrote: "Indian media is nothing but a joke."
