WATCH: Harbhajan Singh's 13-wicket haul against Australia at Eden Gardens

New Delhi: On Harbhajan Singh's 36th birthday, let's rewind and once again catch his unforgettable spell against the visiting Australians at Kolkata's historic Eden Gardens in 2011.

In a bid to conquer the "final frontier", Steve Waugh's side imposed follow-on after they bowled out India for a paltry 171 in response to Aussie's first innings total of 445.

As it turned out, India — thanks to two epic innings from VVS Laxman (281) and Rahul Dravid (180) — responded in the most fitting way to score 657/7 declared, and forced out a result. Of course, in India's favour — winning by 171 runs in front of a packed, euphoric Kolkata crowd.

But that famous win was set-up by none other than Harbhajan, who took 13 wickets in the match. His seven-wicket haul in the first essay which included a hat-trick, was followed up by another six scalps.

Here is the footage to that memorable match, with focus on the Turbanator:
