'Ashwin' become second fastest player to take '200 Test wickets'

Ravichandaran Ashwin was not only a key player in creating history for the Indian team in the Kanpur test which was also India’s 500th Test match, but also played a important role to get one more step ahead of himself as crossed the milestone of 200 Test wickets.

Kane Williamson, the New Zealand skipper was his 200th prey on the field where he spins the ball like a spinning top. R. Ashwin became the second fastest bowler to reach the 200 test wicket milestone of the world, surpassing his former teammate Harbhajan Singh and many others. The player that he wasn’t able to overtake was Australia’s Clarrie Grimmett.

Being modest at his achievement Ashwin when asked, said “I am happy trying to compete with myself. When I say that, I might sound cliched but I always say I constantly compete with myself. You go out and try and beat records. Trying to catch up with records, always teach you lessons. That is something Test cricket taught me pretty early in my career. I lost a good 12 to 18 months and that's good enough to teach me all the lessons,".
