In response to Abhimanyu Mithun’s strange no-ball in the Abu Dhabi T10 League, the former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has responded. This has raised more suspicion regarding spot-fixing allegations being circulated by people on X. The contentious occurrence happened on Saturday, December 2, during the 14th game of the competition between the Chennai Braves and the Northern Warriors.

In the competition, the former fast bowler for India is playing for the Northern Warriors. Despite his impressive performance thus far in the tournament, he has been hogging the spotlight for the wrong reasons. Recently, a video of the pacer bowling an odd no-ball against the Northern Warriors became popular on social media, shocking both analysts and fans. Now, Harbhajan Singh has also reacted to the video.

Abhimanyu Mithun bowled a no-ball after overextending himself. While it is not uncommon for a player to overstep when delivering a no-ball, missing the mark by a significant distance undoubtedly draws attention, particularly from seasoned players like Abhimanyu Mithun.

Fans quickly drew comparisons between the incident and the notorious no-ball bowled by Pakistani bowler Mohammad Amir during the 2010 spot-fixing controversy. The cricket community is absolutely taken aback by Abhimanyu Mithun’s inadvertent no-ball, though that may be the case.

Harbhajan Singh Left Shell Shocked

The event has even surprised Harbhajan Singh. The former spinner who won a World Cup and played professional cricket for over 20 years responded to the incident on X. Despite not writing anything, it was evident from the emojis he posted how he felt.

Regarding the fast bowler’s performance during the match, he once again made an impression with the ball. The former Karnataka pacer lost the match by five wickets in two overs, despite conceding 11 runs and taking two wickets. With seven wickets from five games, Mithun is now the third-highest wicket-taker in the competition. In contrast, the Warriors, who have only won two of their last five games, are mired in sixth place in the standings.

The Abu Dhabi T10 League gained recent attention when the ICC charged eight of its associates for violating the anti-corruption rule in 2021. The accusations center on efforts to taint the tournament’s matches’ fairness.
