Harbhajan Singh hits a shot as England wicket-keeper Matt Prior looks on during the third day of the first Test in Chennai.
With Harbhajan looking for some quick runs, the Indian score board started moving at a brisk pace. He reverse
swept Panesar to the ropes to hoist the 50-run stand with his captain (Dhoni).
India were also able to cross the 200 mark when Harbhajan confidently drove Stephen Harmison to point boundary.

In fact, Harbhajan scored nine runs in that over and that forced England captain Kevin Pietersen to remove Harmison and bring back Graeme Swann.
As the batsmen were coasting towards building up a solid partnership, Harbhajan (40) fell to Panesar being caught at forward
short leg by Ian Bell.
