Harbhajan Singh celebrated his recall to the Indian team with a five-wicket haul for Surrey against Kent on the first day of the four-day County Championship Division One match at Canterbury on Wednesday.

Harbhajan's feat was remarkable as the match is being played on a green top and Kent chose to bat first after winning the toss.

Kent were cruising smoothly and were 61 for 1 at one stage. But Harbhajan got into act and scythed through their line-up to finish with figures of 5 for 34 from 19.4 overs as Kent were all out for 150.

The star-studded Kent -- which has players like Robert Key, Geraint Jones, South African Martin van Jaarsveld, Pakistan's Yasir Arafat and Sri Lankan Lasith Malinga -- had no clue as the Indian offie bagged one wicket after another.

The Turbanator has now been selected to represent India in Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa in September.
