New Delhi: India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin achieved a special milestone in the Kanpur Test. He became the third highest wicket-taker for India in Test cricket. He revealed that he feared that his career would end amid the circumstances arising out of the corona epidemic last year.


Ashwin (419), 35, surpassed Harbhajan Singh (417 wickets in 103 Tests) in his 80th Test match. He said his career was at the double after Team India's tour of New Zealand earlier last year. In an interview to his fellow player Shreyas Iyer for the BCCI website, he said, 'To be honest, I had no idea whether I would play Test cricket again between the corona epidemic and the kickdown that had been happening in my life and my career for the past few years.'

He further said, 'I did not play the last Test match in Christchurch which started on February 29, 2020. I was on the rope to see if I could play the Test again. What's my future. Will I get a place in the Test team because I was playing the same format. God is kind and now the situation has changed completely,' ashwin said, 'I came to the Delhi Capitals (DC) and the situation started changing when you (Shreyas) were captain.' Tell me ashwin's entire family had become corona infected in May. He had to quit the IPL because of this.
