Harbhajan Singh

Harbhajan Singh is one of India's most successful off spin bowlers. He made his Test debut against Australia in 1998. His bowling action was brought into question early in his career and that led him to switch to his trademark windmilling whiplash action. Harbhajan burst into national prominence in the 2001 Test series in which India hosted Steve Waugh's all conquering Australian side. Harbhajan picked 32 wickets, becoming the first Indian to take a Test hat trick on his way to the total. He went on to become an important player for India in all formats of the game for nearly a decade under Sourav Ganguly first and the Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He has also had his fair share of controversies, most prominently the 'Monkey-gate' when India toured Australia in 2007-08. Harbhajan is also known for his aggressive, almost swashbuckling style of batting and has scored two Test centuries in his career.
