Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh becomes 12th international and 2nd Indian player to take 700-wickets
Well, ultimately Team India led by Ajinkya Rahane has won all three ODIs against Zimbabwe and they have been able to maintain their second spot in the ICC's list of top ten ODI teams. In this series, senior Indian spin bowler Harbhajan Singh got a break after a long time, as he had played his last ODI match in 2012.

However, this particular break proved lucky for him as now Harbhajan Singh has completed his tally of 700 wickets in international cricket. Harbhajan Singh reached this mark of 700 wickets in international cricket when he got Sikandar Raza bowled in his final over during the 3rd ODI against Zimbabwe at Harare.

Now he has got his name included in the list of top spinners of the world like Muralidharan and Shane Warne. Anil Kumble happens to be the other Indian who picked up more than 700 wickets at this stage.

Harbhajan Singh, in his landmark journey, has so far picked up 416 wickets in test cricket, 263 in ODI format and 22 in T20 internationals.
