# Harbhajan Singh became the 11th bowler and the third Indian to complete 400 Test wickets.

# Harbhajan took 96 Tests to record the feat - the joint sixth fastest. Muttiah Muralitharan took 72 Tests - the fastest to 400, followed by Richard Hadlee (80), Anil Kumble (85), Glenn McGrath (87), Shane Warne (92), Wasim Akram (96) and Harbhajan (96).

# Under Dhoni's captaincy, Harbhajan has captured 111 wickets at an average of 31.83 in 26 Tests.

# The batsmen dismissed most times by Harbhajan are - Ricky Ponting (10), Matthew Hayden (9) and Adam Gilchrist (7).

# The break-up of Harbhajan's 400 wickets is 277 caught, 46 bowled, 63 LBW and 14 stumped.

# Devendra Bishoo registered his first duck in Tests.

# In two Tests in a row, Ishant Sharma has captured five wickets in an innings - a feat recorded by him for the first time.
