Veteran Indian spinner and former captain of the Mumbai Indians, Harbhajan Singh, has achieved yet another feat in his 19-year old career. After dismissing Steven Smith in the ongoing match against Rising Pune Supergiant, Harbhajan has become the third Indian bowler (all spinners) to dismiss 200 batsmen in T20 cricket.

Amit Mishra (208) and Ravichandran Ashwin (200) are the other two Indian bowlers who have entered the 200-wicket club in T20s. Dwayne Bravo (367) is the highest wicket-taker in T20s.

Harbhajan Singh has been with Mumbai Indians since the inception of the Indian Premier League. He is one of the very few players who have represented only one franchise in the IPL.

In 132 IPL matches, Harbhajan Singh has 123 wickets under his belt. His economy rate of 6.93 and average of 26.60 itself speaks about his credentials. With six wins in seven matches, Mumbai Indians are currently at the top of the points table.

Watch how he clinched his 200th wicket:
