Harbhajan Singh was born on July 3, 1980, at Jullundur (now Jalandhar), Punjab
Harbhajan Singh is India's most successful offspin bowler. Bowling with a windmilling, whiplash action, remodelled after he was reported for throwing, he
exercises great command over the ball, has the ability to vary his length and pace, and can turn it the other way too. His main wicket-taking ball, however,
is the one that climbs wickedly on the unsuspecting batsman from a good length, forcing him to alter his stroke at the last second. In March 2001, it proved
too much for the all-conquering Australians, as Harbhajan collected 32 wickets in three Tests, including the first Test hat-trick by an Indian, while none of
his team-mates managed more than three.
Bhaji,as nicknamed has never quite managed to reach those heights again, but he remains an irresistible force on home pitches where he can be unplayable once
he manages an opening. Purists might mutter about a lack of loop and flight, but he is very much a product of his times where short boundaries and heavy bats
afford little latitude to slow bowlers.
His overseas record, despite two five-fors against West Indies in India's last tour there in 2006, remains a worry: he averages nearly 40 per wicket outside
India, while at home he averages just over 25. He can be occasionally explosive with the bat and has scored 1000 runs. At 27, he remains the prime candidate
to carry on India's rich legacy in spin after the the retirement of Anil Kumble.
Harbhajan's rivalry with the Australians resulted in an on-field spat during Australia's tour of India in October 2007 but things boiled over in Sydney in
January 2008 when Harbhajan was charged with racially abusing Andrew Symonds. He was given a three-Test ban but the charge was reduced, on appeal, to abuse
and insult not amounting to racism and the ban was turned into a fine. In April that year, Harbhajan was involved in another controversy - this time with an
Indian team-mate - when video evidence showed him slapping Sreesanth without any provocation after an IPL game in Mohali. He pleaded guilty at a hearing and
was banned for 11 IPL matches.
Harbhajan is cancerian and his lucky colours are red and lavender and his lucky
numbers are 3,7,21.This year brings for you new possibilities in your job and business plus you will be getting more than one opportunities for your career growth concurrently.
