Harbhajan hopes to take 150 more wickets

Bangalore, Jul 24: Harbhajan Singh is hoping to get back to the Indian team and add 150 more wickets at the international level.

The offspinner, who is currently playing for Essex in England, is aiming to strike it rich in county cricket and win back his place in Indian Test team.

"For me, Test cricket will always be really special and I can't wait to get back into the Indian side by doing well and I hope to take 150 odd wickets for India and that should be good fun," Harbhajan said in an interview to London24 website in London on Monday.

He further added: "I'll work hard and do whatever I can from my side to get back into the Indian side and hopefully, with the grace of God I'll be there soon and start winning games again for Team India."

The 32-year-old said since there is no cricket in India at the moment, he is using the opportunity to play in England.

"This is the perfect opportunity for me. We don't play cricket in India at this point in time. England is a very good place to play cricket and the county circuit has helped a lot of players to redevelop their game and to learn about their game."

Harbhajan has been out of India reckoning for more than a year now. His place in the team has been taken by Ravichandran Ashwin.

In the ongoing tour of Sri Lanka, India have gone with three young spinners in Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha and Rahul Sharma.

Harbhajan has played 98 Tests and 229 One Day Internationals. He has 406 Test and 259 ODI wickets. His last match for India was a Test against England in July-August, 2011.
