Dubai: In what would be music to the ears of Harbhajan Singh, ICC Match Referee Jeff Crowe on Monday ruled out taking any action against the Indian off spinner, who was alleged to have made monkey gestures towards crowd at the SCG.
Australian media reports had claimed that Harbhajan had made monkey gestures towards the Sydney crowd during the first final of the tri-series against Australia on Sunday and even spat in anger while fielding at the boundary ropes.
"I have investigated the alleged incident with Cricket Australia's ground security officials after reading newspaper reports and viewing related photographs that have been published.
"After reviewing all available information, I conclude that there is no need to take any action against Harbhajan Singh," Crowe said in a statement, issued by the International Cricket Council.
