Mumbai: It has been an extraordinary 11 months for Harbhajan Singh. The journey began with a maiden Test century against New Zealand at Ahmedabad, quickly followed by a second. A few months later, he nearly spun India to a maiden Test series win in South Africa. On April 2, he lifted the World Cup. On July 7, he completed 400 Test wickets.

Life came full circle on the tour of England. It's a place that the Turbanator has never enjoyed. In five Tests there, he has just 14 wickets at an average of close to 50.00 Criticism has been flying thick and fast. But that hasn't perturbed the off-spinner. In fact, some section of the media even speculated that he faked the injury to avoid further embarrassment in England. Harbhajan, who returned home after intense rehabilitation for a career-threatening abdomen injury last week, is ready for a rebirth.
