Indian team’s experienced star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has a golden chance to achieve another record in Test cricket.
Ashwin will now play the home Test series against the Australian team, in which he can register this big record. Ashwin is just one wicket away from this record.
Indian veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has played 88 Test matches so far. He has taken 449 wickets at an average of 24.30. If Ashwin takes one wicket in the Nagpur Test match against Australia, he will become the fastest Indian bowler to take 450 wickets.
Also, Ashwin will become the second bowler in the world to complete 450 wickets in the fastest test history. Meanwhile, with this feat, Ashwin will break the record of former Indian spinner Anil Kumble, who took 450 wickets in the 93rd Test match.
While the record for taking the fastest 450 wickets in Test history is in the name of former Sri Lankan veteran Muttiah Muralitharan, Muralitharan completed 450 wickets in his 80th match.
