Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh says he hates to lose to Australia so it cannot be a coincidence that the best of his performances are against those wearing the baggy greens.

"I hate losing to Australia. I mean it can't be a coincidence that all my best performances have come against them," Harbhajan said.

"It just perks me up whenever I play against them as they are the team to beat," he told the ESPN-Star Sports.

Harbhajan, who has proven himself as the tormentor of the Aussies to earn the name 'Turbanator' disclosed he did not like such nomenclature.

"I don't know but I never liked it. My name is Harbhajan Singh and I want to be addressed as Harbhajan Singh," he said.

Harbhajan is just a few wickets away to scalp 300 Test victims but he said it did not really matter who his 300th batsman will be as long as it happens sooner than later.

"I am God's favourite son, he has given me all. I never thought I'd be able to reach this far in cricket but God will get me that 300th wicket I don't need to worry about it," he said.
