The 22-year-old is rightly heralded as one of the great bowling talents in the world today.

The "Turbanator", as he is affectionately known as, produced a stunning performance against the touring Australians in the 2000/2001 series when he took 32 wickets during the three Test series.


Harbhajan also grabbed a hat-trick in the second Test at Calcutta, when he took the wickets of Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist and Shane Warne in successive balls.

In the one-day internationals, Harbhajan has a strike rate of just over 40, which he will be looking to improve at the World Cup, but with and economy rate of just over 4.00, the 22-year-old will be an integral part of the India team.
