In 2007-08, Harbhajan Singh and Andrew Symonds clashed on the Indian team’s tour of Australia. Even then the ground was in Sydney. Symonds alleged that Bhajji called him a monkey. This phenomenon is called ‘Monkeygate’. Symonds was batting in the Sydney Test. He was running from Harbhajan Singh. During this time there was also a verbal war between the two. Symonds later alleged that Bhajji called him a monkey.

According to ICC rules, this was a racial comment. Then the whole series was in danger. Hearing took place in front of the match referee. Harbhajan got a clean chit. Despite this, this matter is still sometimes raised today.
