Ravichandran Ashwin has broken the Test record of Harbhajan Singh, the spinner of the Indian team. Ashwin has now become India’s third highest wicket-taker. Bhajji congratulated Ashwin for this splendid achievement. Harbhajan Singh took 417 wickets in his Test career. Ashwin surpassed Bhajji on the fifth day of the Kanpur Test. However, despite this, the test ended in a draw. India could not take the last wicket of the visiting team. Despite Ajinkya Rahane’s protest, the match ended in a draw due to poor lighting conditions.
During a conversation with PTI, Harbhajan Singh said that I do not believe in comparison. I tried to give the best for India in my time. Ravichandran Ashwin has tried to give the best in his time. I congratulate Ashwin for this performance and hope that he will set many new records in the times to come.
Harbhajan Singh played a total of 103 matches during his Test career. During this, he took 25 five-wicket hauls and five ten-wicket hauls in 150 innings. At the same time, Ravichandran Ashwin has taken five-wicket haul 30 times in 80 matches. Seven times Ashwin also managed to take out 10 wickets hall.
In this list, now Kapil Dev is the next victim of Ashwin on target. The Indian veteran took 434 wickets in his Test career as an all-rounder. It is believed that in the next two-three matches, Ashwin will break the record of Kapil Dev. After this, only Anil Kumble will be ahead of Ashwin in this matter. In his Test career, Kumble took 619 wickets in 132 matches.
