Ravichandran Ashwin has become the fastest three hundred wicket-taker in TestToday in Nagpur Test, India convincingly beat Srilanka by an inning and 239 runs. Srilanka could not compete with India either in batting or in bowling. Although Indian captain Virat Kohli has scored a double century and become Man-of-the-Match, to me the hero is Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
Ashwin has become the fastest 300 wicket-taker in Test cricket. Today he broke the record of Australian great fast bowler Dennis Lillee. Lillee got 300 wickets in 56 Tests whereas Ashwin has achieved the distinction in 54 Tests. Earlier this year, Ashwin had broken Lillee's record to become fastest 250 wicket-taker in Test.
Since 2015, Ashwin's career graph in Test has been continuously on the rise. I sincerely hope that he breaks the record of Mutthaiah Murleedharan and becomes the highest wicket-taker in Test cricket.
