Indian team’s fourth-highest wicket-taker is Harbhajan Singh
Harbhajan Singh has contributed a lot to the Indian team.

Taker, he has 417 wickets.
Harbhajan Singh said some words?
If you ask me about my cricket career, my first real pleasure was the hat-trick taken in Kolkata, becoming the first Indian bowler to do so in a Test match. I also took 32 wickets in three Test matches in that series, which is still a record. Those were the moments I can neither forget nor express in words how great that joy was to me.
The great Kumble remains the country’s top spinner after Harbhajan Singh in the 2000s. Where he took a hat-trick in the famous Eden Garden Test in Kolkata. He dismissed Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, and Shane Warne in successive deliveries in what is arguably his most famous Test win of all time.
