India spinner Harbhajan Singh on twitter wrote that every cricketer who plays for India is a ‘Hindustani’, in response to a tweet sent out by Sanjeev Bhatt, a former Indian Police Service (IPS) officer and a prolific social media user. Bhatt questioned the board of control for cricket in India’s (BCCI) selection policy by asking whether there is any Muslim player in the Indian cricket team right now? And have the Muslims stopped playing cricket?

Harbhajan, replying to the tweet, further wrote that one should not bring up the caste and colour of the players and that Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christians are like brothers.

The BCCI had named the Indian squad for the India vs New Zealand T20I series along with the squad for the first two Tests against Sri Lanka starting next month with Hyderabad pacer Mohammed Siraj earning a place in the T20I squad, while Mohammad Shami retained his place in the Test squad on Monday.
