Harbhajan Singh's consecutive Test centuries against New Zealand have drawn praise from none other than Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.

Speaking highly of Bhajji's achievement in his blog, Big B wrote: ""Harbhajan Singh has done it again! Another century against New Zealand and bringing India on to a respectable game. This is unusual."

"Bhajji is the one that is supposed to bowl, is the nominated wicket taker - he of Turbanator fame! Instead, he has bowled and batted both, and brought such relevance to his position in the team, that it now seems inevitable that whenever he shall come out the expectations shall drive him to deliver," he wrote in his blog bigb.bigadda.com.

"I send him greetings whenever he has performed - performed well and with reward. And, as is his wont, he always responds and acknowledges back. Writing copious expressions of gratefulness and thanks," he added.

Indian off-spinner Harbhajan became the first number eight player to register two successive centuries in Tests. He struck his maiden Test century in the first Test against New Zealand at Ahmedabad (115) and followed it up with an unbeaten 111 on the fourth day of the second Test at Hyderabad on Monday.
