Bangalore: Nick named the famous turbanator - Harbhajan Singh who teased and tormented the mighty Australians when it toured India in 2000/01 has once again proved what a devastating bowler he could be on pitches helpful to him when he took seven West Indian wickets and with support at the other end from the experienced Anil Kumble, helped India to register an innings victory for the first time against the West Indies - probably the weakest side ever to tour India.

However that should not take the credit away from India's spinners who exploited the pitch to the full extent. Harbhajan Singh who has made it a habit these days to take 5 wickets in an innings, again took 7 or more wickets in an innings for the fourth time in his test career. Overall this was his 10th five-wicket haul. The complete list of five wicket hauls by Harbhajan is as under:
