Ashwin enters 400 Test wicket club

Ravichandran Ashwin became the second fastest to pick up 400 wickets on Thursday — after Sri Lanka legend Muttiah Muralitharan — when he dismissed Jofra Archer in the second innings of the pink-ball Test at Narendra Modi Stadium.

 

Ashwin overtook New Zealand legend Richard Hadlee and South Africa’s Dale Steyn.

 

The pacers have played 80 Tests, while Ashwin scalped his 400th wicket in his 77th Test.

Muralitharan had reached the milestone in his 72nd Test.

Ashwin is the fourth Indian bowler to enter the 400 Test wicket club after Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.
