    'Turbanator' heads for the nickname elite

    Harbhajan Singh's series-winning performance against Australia has not only won him worldwide praise, it has also earnt him an immediate nickname -- ``The Turbanator.''

    The Herald Sun in Melbourne coined the phrase on Friday after Singh ended India's 2-1 series victory over Steve Waugh's tourists with 32 wickets.

    ``From party boy to the Turbanator,'' the newspaper's headline ran as it chronicled Singh's spectacular comeback from early discipline problems and a suspect action.

    The Sikh bowler's new nickname, playing on the title of Arnold Schwarzenegger's film ``The Terminator'' (which also spawned ``The Hermanator'' for Austrian skier Hermann Maier) seems certain to stick -- as long as he can build on his success.

    Singh should be flattered. You have to be good to be worth a nickname, and very good to get one at the tender age of 20.

    Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar took no time to be christened the ``Rawalpindi Express,'' while England's new opener Marcus Trescothick is ``Banger'' because of his love of sausages.

    Perhaps the top nickname in recent years, though, goes to South African spinner Paul Adams who, with his extraordinary action, became the ``frog in a blender.''
