Sydney: Australian skipper Ricky Ponting has admitted that Harbhajan Singh is one of the few bowlers in world cricket to have dominated him down the years.

Harbhajan has been a thorn in the Australian sides and Ricky Ponting in particular, since his remarkable wicket-taking efforts in the 2001 tour of India, which the hosts won 2-1.

However, the 30-year-old looked in some discomfort during training on Monday, and was later taken to hospital for MRI scans.



"None of the other off spinners have their way around me as Harbhajan does," Ponting told ESPN.

"So I have to give it to him. He has bowled very well against me," he said.

Harbhajan's unorthodox lower order batting has also frustrated Australian bowlers.

Australia lost their commanding positions against India at Bangalore and Nagpur during the 2008 Test series due to half centuries from Harbhajan after the top order had collapsed.
