Somethin Common Between Harbhajan Singh And A Belter??

Well-the last or rather recent test match between India and South Africa proved to be a batsmen's paradise with as many as 4 centuries and cool 5 half centuries.But,there was some relief for just one bowler in that match and that is none other than Bhajji.The man could manage a five wicket haul despite the free flow of runs from the willows of the South African batsmen.

And much to the surprise,I found something common between Harbhajan Singh and the kind of pitches similar to the one in which the first test against South Africa was played.Some of which I can share with you people are:

1)Picks up a five wicket haul against Pakistan in Bangalore in 2005 where Pakistan had belted a mammoth 570 runs.

2)Picks up a 5/122 against Pakistan once again at Eden Gardens where both the teams had crosse 600 & 450 respectively.

3)The most memorable one being the three five consecutive 5 wicket hauls against Australia way back in 2001,where he took figures of 4/121 at Mumbai,7/123 & 6/73 at
Eden Gardens
,7/1212 & 8/84 at Chepauk.Each time when Australia commanded their position with the bat.
