About Harbhajan Singh

In addition to being a Rajya Sabha member, Harbhajan Singh (born July 3, 1980) is a retired Indian cricketer who spent nearly two decades playing for the Indian national team. He also serves as a cricket pundit. Singh was an off-spin bowler with a right arm.

In addition to the Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, and Kolkata Knight Riders teams in the IPL, he also played for the Punjab cricket team in domestic cricket in India. One of the top spinners of his time is regarded as Singh.

He was a member of the teams that won the 2007 T20 World Cup, the 2011 Cricket World Cup, and one of the 2002 ICC Champions Trophy teams that also won the trophy alongside Sri Lanka.

Early Life

Initially trained as a batter, Charanjit Singh Bhullar switched to teaching spin bowling under Davinder Arora after the untimely death of his guru.  Arora attributes Harbhajan’s accomplishments to a commitment to the hard effort that includes a morning training session lasting three hours and an afternoon session lasting from three until after sunset.


Harbhajan was chosen for the Indian Board President’s XI to face the visiting Australian cricket team before the Tests, despite the better domestic cricket statistics of other bowlers. Before being chosen to play in the third Test against Australia in Bangalore, when he scored 4 not out and a duck while recording the unimpressive match stats of 2/136 as Australia won the match by eight wickets, he managed only 1/127 and was disregarded for the first two Tests.

After the Tests, he was passed over for the triangular ODI competition in India, which also included Zimbabwe and Australia. But soon after, in the triangular competition that was held in Sharjah, he was selected for every group game and played in his first ODI against New Zealand. In his first ten overs, he took 1/32, helping India win by just 15 runs.
