Lancashire discard Harbhajan

London: In a sudden decision, English county Lancashire Friday terminated its contract with Harbhajan Singh after the off-spinner failed a fitness test Thursday.

The Indian superstar had sustained a finger injury during the World Cup in South Africa which prevented him from joining Lancashire at the start of the season.

Its disappointing that Harbhajan wont be joining us, but at least a firm decision has been taken. We wish him well for the future and trust that he will recover soon, Lancashire cricket manager Mike Watkinson said. Carl Hooper, who was taken in as replacement for Harbhajan, is likely to continue till the end of the season.
