What did Harbhajan's fingers say to the face?

There isn’t much danger of a reprise of monkey chants with the absence of Andrew Symonds, but that doesn’t stop a couple of Australian supporters from having some good-natured fun at the expense of Harbhajan Singh, the other central character in the controversy.

"What did Harbhajan's five fingers say to the face ......Slap", read the message on the t-shirts that Paul Weston and Mark Edmonds wore to the ground on the second day of the Bangalore Test. It was cheeky, but without malice. “We decided to bring our own humour by coming up with a line every day", Edmonds said. They got the text written out at a local mall in Bangalore. “We wanted to print a photograph of Harbhajan on the back, but couldn't find it,” Weston said. They are from Melbourne and on their final leg of a month-long tour of India, which has taken them, among other places, to Kashmir.
