Harbhajan Singh Punjabi born July 3, 1980 in Jalandhar, Punjab, india has been an Indian cricketer and Indias most successful off spin bowler. Harbhajan made his Test and One Day International (ODI) debuts in early 1998. In the 2001 Border Gavaskar Trophy team series victory over Australia, Harbhajan established himself as the teams leading spinner by taking 32 wickets and becoming the first Indian bowler to take a hat trick in Test cricket. Despite unremarkable Test performances in 2006, leading to speculation about his lack of loop and his waning value as a strike bowler, he remains Indias first choice ODI spinner.Harbhajan Singh has experienced more pressure than from just representing India on the cricket field. As a visible member of the sikh faith, a minority faith in India, he feels the added pressure of representing his faith by choosing to wear his black turban while playing. He earned the nickname Turbanator, while playing outside India, for his ability to put out batters with his difficult-to-hit spin throw. Harbhajan suffered the greatest challenge to his goal of becoming a top cricket bowler in India when his father passed away suddenly. In traditional Punjabi Sikh society, the eldest son becomes responsible for the family upon the fathers death. Fortunately for the game of cricket in India, he continued play, becoming an outstanding bowler with his unique spin style bowl. In a game that has little room for forgiveness when a player under performs, Harbhajan has regularly played at a championship levelHarbhajan had been born into a middle class Punjabi family, the only son of SardarSardevSingh, who owned a ball bearing and valve factory.Growing up with five sisters, he stood in line to inherit the family business, but his father insisted that he concentrate on his cricket career and represent India.Charanjit Singh Bullar, Harbhajans first coach, trained him as a batsman. He switched to spin bowling, after his coachs untimely death, under the tutelage of Davinder Arora. Arora credits Harbhajans success to a work ethic that included a three hour training session in the morning, followed by another in the afternoon lasting from 3:00 p.m. until after sunset, using the headlights of a parked scooter to provide light.

In a country that idolizes cricketers, Harbhajans performances have brought him government accolades and lucrative sponsorships. Following his performance against Australia in 2001, the Government of Punjab awarded him Rs. 5 lakh, a plot of land, and an offer to become an honorary Deputy Superintendent of Punjab Police, which he declined. Harbhajan works also an employee of Indian Airlines, for whom he does promotions.One of his common nicknames, outside India, The Turbanator, deriving from his skill as a bowlerinterminating the innings of the opposing team. As a sikh, he wearsaturbanwhheplays. In 2005 Harbhajan had been the most recognized and commercially viable Indian cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar, in part due to his colorful personality and iconic turban. His signing for English county team Surrey in 2005, based at The Oval in London, has been partly attributed to his marketability. Harbhajan had generated a large personal following in the western London suburb of Southall, which boasts a majority Punjabi Sikh population, when he lived there in 1998 whilst training under Fred Titmus.
