In a story headlined “Bhajji dined with Sreesanth after slapping him”, Rediff reports:
Barely a couple of hours after slapping his India teammate S Sreesanth, a repentant Harbhajan Singh had a quiet dinner with the Kerala pacer to get over the unsavoury incident. Senior sources in the team management reveal that the bowlers had terrific make-up sex, with Bhajji, of course, on top.
