Hyderabad, Oct 3 (UNI) Pace bowler S Sreesanth sings praises for Harbhajan Singh, with whom he was involved in the infamous slap-gate episode saying the temperamental off-spinner is now a changed person and he will keep his word to resist provocation in the Test series against Australia starting October 9.
''I am a huge fan of his and everyone learns from experience.
I'm looking forward to playing with him again. Life has moved on and whatever he has learnt as a cricketer is always good for India,'' Sreesanth said yesterday.
Harbhajan was suspended for slapping Sreesanth at the end of an IPL game between the Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians at Mohali, after the equally volatile Sreesanth antagonised the Mumbai team, of which the off-spinner was acting captain.
''Whatever he speaks, he does it. He's always done well against Australia since those 32 wickets (in 2001) and Ricky Ponting should watch out for him,'' he added.
Harbhajan has claimed Australian skipper Ricky Ponting's wicket eight times in Tests. Indian captain Kumble has accounted Ponting on seven times.
