England were playing an ODI series in India in March 2006 the first of which was held at the historic Feroz Shah Kotla ground in Delhi.

England won the toss and chose to field and the decision yielded great results for them. The new ball bowlers including Kabir Ali kept things tight and chipped away at the wickets. The hosts could last only 46.4 overs scoring just 203.

But in the second innings, it was the all Harbhajan show. The offspinner who was in his prime during those years ran through the England batting order like a knife through butter.

Among his prized scalps were Andrew Flintoff the captain and Paul Collingwood. He finally ended up with 5/31 helping his team bowl out England for a paltry 164 to script an amazing victory.
