Bio

Harbhajan Singh has caused Australia severe problems throughout his eventful career, both with offspin bowling and an aggressive attitude. 

The famous 2001 Test series was when Harbhajan emerged as a world-class operator, taking 32 wickets in three games. 

His tally against Australia before the summer sat at 90 victims in 16 appearances, and he has removed Ricky Ponting 10 times. 

His teasing spin is often unplayable in India but, like most finger spinners, he has struggled for success in Australia. Overall he has 408 wickets in 98 Tests, while 300 victims looks like an achievable target in ODIs. 

With the bat Harbhajan can be extremely useful, and has recorded two Test centuries.
