Indias cricket board asked ace spinner Harbhajan Singh to explain his conduct Saturday after he allegedly slapped national teammate Shantakumaran Sreesanth during a domestic Twenty20 match. News reports said Singh on Friday slapped Sreesanth, who was on the opposing team, at the conclusion of the match but later apologised for losing his temper. Weve issued a show cause notice to Harbhajan Singh, who is a contracted player of the Indian board, the cricket boards chief administrator Ratnakar Shetty said.

Television footage showed Sreesanth crying after the altercation Friday.
