Harbhajan Singh has the second-highest number of Test wickets by an off spinner, behind Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan.[1]

In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "fifer"[2]) refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement,[3] and as of August 2014 only 41 bowlers have taken 15 or more five-wicket hauls at international level in their cricketing careers.[4] Harbhajan Singh—a right-arm off break bowler—is a Test, One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) cricketer who represents India. As of August 2014, Harbhajan has taken 413 wickets in Test cricket, 259 wickets in ODI cricket and 22 wickets in T20I cricket.[5] With 28 five-wicket hauls across all formats of the game, Harbhajan ranks second in the number of international five-wicket hauls among Indian cricketers—after Anil Kumble—and eighth among all players.[a]

Harbhajan made his Test debut against Australia in 1998. His first five-wicket haul came against the same team during the second Test of the 2000–01 series at Eden Gardens.[6] His 6 wickets for 73 runs in the second innings raised his tally to 13 wickets in the match; Harbhajan's performance led India to winning the match after being forced to follow-on.[7][b] In the third Test of the series, he claimed 15 wickets for 217 runs, including career-best figures of 8 wickets for 84 runs.[6] The majority of his fifers came against Australia – 7 of his 25 in Test cricket.[9]

Making his ODI debut against New Zealand in 1998,[5] Harbhajan's first five-wicket haul came against England in 2002. He took 5 wickets for 43 runs in the match, which India lost.[10][11] His 5 wickets for 31 runs—also his career-best figures—against the same team in 2006 resulted in an Indian victory.[12][13] Although Harbhajan made his first T20I appearance in 2006,[5] he is yet to pick up a fifer in the format as of August 2014. His figures of 4 wickets for 12 runs against England in 2012 remain his best in this version of the game.[c]
