Ind vs Eng 4th Test: 5 unknown records R Ashwin can achieve in the final Test- After completing his 400-wickets in the third Test, R Ashwin is eyeing another list of records at the rank turner. As the defiant team India aim 3-1 win over England and secure their WTC Final berth, Ashwin can achieve as many as 5 records in the upcoming Test. Take a look:
India’s ace-spinner R Ashwin is only four wickets behind former West Indies bowler Courtley Ambrose’s record (405 wickets).
R Ashwin needs six wickets to go past Kapil Dev’s record of 85 Test wickets against England. The 34-year-old can reach the feat in only 19 Tests, Kapil Dev had taken 27 Tests. He could also surpass Anil Kumble in the elite list (92 wickets). Currently, Ashwin has 80 wickets in 18 Test matches against England.
R Ashwin is only two five-wicket hauls away to break Ian Botham’s record of 6 five-wicket hauls in India vs England Tests. Ashwin has 5 fifers in Tests against England.
Ashwin can equal Bedser for most 10 wicket haul in Ind vs Eng Tests if he picks 10 wickets in the spinner’s paradise.
The India allrounder R Ashwin needs just 26 runs to surpass former India captain Sourav Ganguly (983) in the list of highest run-scorers against England in Tests. If he can smash a century then he can also go past Michael Vaughan (1016) and Ravi Shastri’s (1026) runs in Ind vs Eng Test series.
If Ashwin can score two fifties or a hundred in the fourth Test, he can go past former India wicket-keeper Syed Kirmani’s record (2759) of most runs for India in Tests. He is only 116 runs behind the former India cricketer.
