About Harbhajan Singh (from Wikipedia Page)

Harbhajan Singh Plaha, commonly known as Harbhajan, nicknamed Bhajji or Bhajju Pa, is an Indian cricketer, who has played all formats of cricket for India.

A specialist spinner, he has the second-highest number of Test wickets by an off spinner, behind Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan.

He was captain of IPL team Mumbai Indians and Punjab for the 2012–13 Ranji Trophy season. Under his captaincy, Mumbai Indians won the 2011 Champions League Twenty20.

Singh made his Test and One Day International (ODI) debuts in early 1998.

His career was initially affected by investigations into the legality of his bowling action, as well as several disciplinary incidents.

However, in 2001, with leading leg spinner Anil Kumble injured, Harbhajan’s career was resuscitated after Indian captain Sourav Ganguly called for his inclusion in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy team.

In that series victory over Australia, Harbhajan established himself as the team’s leading spinner by taking 32 wickets, becoming the first Indian bowler to take a hat-trick in Test cricket.
