Battle of the offspinners

With his two wickets today, Harbhajan Singh has passed the wicket tally of Erapalli Prasanna in Tests; he has 191, at the time of writing, to Prasanna's 189. Prasanna took 49 Tests to get there, while Harbhajan is playing his 44th.

Prasanna, of course, has been romanticised endlessly through rose-tinted glasses. Harbhajan's achievements are fresh in the memory. So who is greater? That's hard to say. One thing is certain, though: Harbhajan wears a more fetching patka.
