Q1 His art of sledging through innocuous one-liners that scratch deep into a batsman's composure has received grudging respect worldwide. When Harbhajan Singh walked to the middle at a crucial juncture in a Asia Cup match, he merely verbalised an observation, noting that Harbhajan preferred three-quarter length, elbow-covering sleeves when bowling but not while batting. In 2002 he ruffled Jacques Kallis into a fury at Centurion with references to Don Bradman, digging at a misquoted line from Kallis that had been jumped upon by the media for betraying great arrogance. After Gareth Batty's offspin came into the attack when he was batting in a Test, he asked quizzically: "Where's Robert Croft, England's best offspinner?" Which cricketer is being referred here for his slick sledging?
