Sreesanth not to file complaint against Harbhajan

April 26, 2008 12:33 IST

Kings XI Punjab paceman S Sreesanth [Images] on Saturday described Mumbai XI stand-in captain Harbhajan Singh's [Images] alleged slap as "shake hand on a wrong side" and said he would not file a complaint against him.

When specifically asked by media if he was slapped by Harbhajan last night, Sreesanth said "not exactly".

"Not exactly (slapped), it was a shake hand on a wrong side. I don't want to file any complaint against him," said Sreesanth who was seen bitterly crying on the ground last night.

The aggressive fast bowler, who was seen bitterly crying on the ground after the match, which his side won against Mumbai Indians last night in Mohali, however refused to give details on the issue.

"Nothing much, nothing really happened, whatever has happened should stay on the field. He is like my elder brother. At the end of the day we are playing for this same country," he said.

Asked then what made him cry on the ground, the 25-year-old bowler "I had fever in the morning and I was feeling emotional. (But) I am not hurt and not at all worried. He (Harbhajan) is elder brother," he added.

On whether the Kings XI Punjab team management would file any complaint as it was being speculated, he said "I don't know about that."

Harbhajan allegedly slapped Sreesanth after Mumbai Indians lost their IPL match by 66 runs to Kings XI Punjab on Friday night.
