The spin bowler known as Bhaji is one of India's most beloved players, but also one if its most controversial. Against Australia in 2008, Singh was banned for three test matches for calling Australian player Andrew Symonds a "monkey." Also, that year, while captain for the Indian Premier League team the Mumbai Indians, he was suspended for slapping rival bowler Sreesanth for saying "hard luck" to him after a match. Sreesanth was caught crying by cameras after the slap.
