Harbhajan Singh has hit back at media over ‘privilege’ statement against former India captain and teammate Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The 36-year-old Indian off-spinner was quoted in an interview on Thursday by a news channel, that he is not extended the same privilege as Dhoni, when it comes to Team India selection.

Slamming media sites for misquoting him, Harbhajan clarified that he never doubted the former skipper’s selection and requested the media not to quote him on things which he never said.

He further added that Dhoni is his good friend and a great player, while urging not to harm his image just to create sensational stories.

"MSD is a dear friend and a great player. I never doubted his selection, so please don’t quote me on things which I never said, just to run ur sites n create ‘sensational stories’ don’t misquote & run out of context to harm someone elses image,” he added in a series of tweets.

Dhoni is currently in England, where he is training along with India’s Champions Trophy squad. India will play its first match against arch-rivals Pakistan on June 4.
