Harbhajan Singh take 400 Test wickets

Harbhajan Singh became the 11th bowler in history to capture 400 Test wickets while Ishant Sharma again bowled impressively in the rain-lashed third Test between India and West Indies on Thursday.

India were 8/0, replying to West Indies' first innings total of 204/10, when a combination of rain and bad light stopped play early on the second day at Windsor Park, where only 49.2 over were possible.

Ishant Sharma, the most successful of all the bowlers in the series, upstaged Harbhajan, taking 5-77 from 21.3 overs.

His success, followed up his 6-55 in the first innings of the drawn 2nd Test at Bridgetown, taking his tally in the three-Test series to 21 wickets at 14.04 apiece. Harbhajan, playing his 96th Test for the Indians, bowled Carlton Baugh for the West Indies top score of 60 about an hour and 20 minutes after lunch to achieve the milestone.

Only former skipper Anil Kumble (619) and Kapil Dev (434) have taken more wickets for the visitors than Harbhajan.

He is also the 4th spin bowler to take 400 wickets in Test Cricket, following in the footsteps of fellow off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka, whose 800 scalps are the most, Australia's Shane Warne (708), and Kumble.
