Indian spinner doubtful for third test

6:44 am on 28 October 2008

The Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is doubtful for the third test against Australia starting tomorrow in Delhi.

Harbajan has a toe injury, and coach Gary Kirsten says he hopes it's an overuse injury, although they're not sure at this stage.

Harnhajan has been a major factor in the 4-test series, which Indian lead 1-nil, and he needs one more dismissal to bring up 300 test wickets.

The Indian captain and leg spinner Anil Kumble, who missed the second test with a shoulder injury, is expected to return to lead the side.
