Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh added another feather to his cap on Thursday, becoming the third Indian bowler and 11th overall to take 400 wickets in Test cricket.

Anil Kumble (619) and Kapil Dev (434) are the other two Indian bowlers to have achieved the feat.

Playing his 96th match, Harbhajan got to the milestone when he bowled Carlton Baugh on the second day of the third and final cricket Test against the West Indies.

Harbhajan, who made his Test debut against Australia in 1998, needed two wickets to reach the landmark at the start of this match, and seven at the start of the three-match Test series.

He has 25 five-wicket and five ten-wicket hauls in the longest form of the game.

Former Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, with 800 wickets, heads the list.

Join us in congratulating the 31-year-old off-spinner.
