IND vs ENG 2nd Test: Ravichandran Ashwin will create history in the second test
Ravichandran Ashwin is considered one of the top spinners in the world. Even the biggest giants can’t stay on the crease in front of his bowling. When he’s in his element, he can decimate any batting lineup.
In the first test (IND vs ENG), R Ashwin took six wickets against England. In that match, England defeated India by 28 runs. R Ashwin is on the verge of making history in the second Test match. He will have to set three-Test cricket records.
The experienced spinner has 496 wickets in his name in 96 Test matches. If he takes 4 wickets he will complete 500 Test wickets. In this case, he will become the second Indian bowler to do so after the great Anil Kumble. Former Indian captain Anil Kumble took 500 Test wickets in his 105th Test match. Whereas R Ashwin can surpass Kumble by making this record in his 97th match.
Anil Kumble finished his great Test career with 619 wickets in 132 Tests. It may take some time for Ashwin to accomplish this milestone, but he will do it shortly, while Sri Lankan icon Murali Muralitharan owns the overall record of 500 Test wickets. Ashwin is now six wickets away from taking 100 or more wickets in India’s Test match against England. He will be the first Indian and the second overall bowler to accomplish this feat.
