Harbhajan Singh’s Test Record: With 417 wickets, Harbhajan is the third-most successful bowler in Indian cricket history.

Harbhajan Singh’s ODI Record: Even in the limited-overs format, Harbhajan was a match-winner. Though he didn’t get to 300 ODI wickets in his career, he played a key part in India’s World Cup victory in 2011 and also the 2003 World Cup campaign where India reached the finals.

Harbhajan Singh’s T20 Record: Though he played in the 2007 World T20 which India won, Harbhajan could never become as adept in the shortest format as he was in the other two. He ended up playing just 28 matches in this version.

Harbhajan Singh’s IPL Record: Harbhajan started his IPL career with Mumbai Indians and played a part in their success. Though he didn’t become the spin-bowling star that someone like Rashid Khan or Sunil Narine did, he was a very valuable player who had decent results regularly.
