New Delhi: Call it a tryst with destiny or a comeback -- time and again Harbhajan Singh has made the headlines when it matters the most. And though one usually associates the term 'timing' with batsmen in cricket, but Bhajji has always been dramatically good with it, and that too with ball.
And, again, call it luck or whatever, a piece of history is always waiting to be scripted round the corner.
Take this: An upcoming spinner then, the young Punjab-lad is taken in the India team that is to tour Australia in 2000, but never gets a match. Quite naturally, with Anil Kumble around and the pitches in discussion being that of the MCGs and the SCGs, there's no way another spinner finds a place in India's scheme of things. India is humiliated to 3-0 whitewash.
