R Ashwin India vs England Test Series : R Ashwin. One of the most powerful and deadly spinners in the world at the moment. Especially when there are Test matches in India, it is very difficult to play Ravichandran Ashwin’s ball. At present, when the Test series is being played between India and England, Ashwin is bowling amazingly. In the two Tests held so far, Ashwin has taken a lot of wickets. Meanwhile, Ashwin has taken 499 wickets in Test cricket, which means he needs only one more success to complete 500 wickets. Only one wicket is needed for this record, but if he gets more successes after this then Ashwin can create the record. He is preparing to oust Anil Kumble.
Ashwin can become the highest wicket taking bowler in India
Actually, the record of taking most Test wickets in India is currently in the name of Anil Kumble. Kumble has taken 350 wickets during his career in India. After this comes Ravichandran Ashwin. Ashwin has taken 346 wickets in his name so far. That means, to complete 350 wickets, Ashwin needs only 4 wickets and to overtake Kumble, he will need 5 more wickets. If Ashwin gets even a little help from the pitch, then it will not be a difficult task for Ashwin to take 5 wickets out of 20. At least considering the way he has performed in the last two Tests, there will not be any problem at all.
Ashwin’s bowling in the first two tests against England
R Ashwin had three successes in the first innings and three in the second against England in the first Test played in Hyderabad. After this, when he reached Visakhapatnam for the second match, he did not take any wicket in the first innings, but in the second he took three wickets. That means he has taken 9 wickets in two test matches. Now it remains to be seen how many more players they dismiss in the third test. Ashwin, who took 499 wickets in 97 Tests, has also taken 156 wickets in ODIs. He has taken 72 wickets in his name in 65 T20 International matches.
Ashwin does wonders with batting too
Ashwin, who is almost 37 years old, can still play cricket for at least two-three more years. Especially when there is a Test in India, there is no bowler equal to Ashwin. His special thing is that he not only brings success to the team through bowling but also has the ability to do wonders in batting. Ashwin has scored 5 centuries and 14 half-centuries in Tests. It remains to be seen how Ashwin performs in the remaining three matches.
