On Sunday, the Indian off-spinner equaled the record of legendary all-round captain and World Cup winner Kapil Dev in the first Test match against Sri Lanka at Mohali. Kapil Dev and Ravichandran Ashwin are now tied at 434 wickets and the only Indian bowler who has more wickets than them is Anil Kumble.
Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin equal Dev Kapil‘s record in the first test match against Sri Lanka at Mohali on Sunday. India dominated the game against the visitors and gave them no chance as they look to win the test match by one set. Ravindra Jadeja was magnificent throughout the test match as he did not allow the Sri Lankan batters to take the game away from India. Jadeja took 5 wickets in the first innings of the game.
However, it was Ravichandran Ashwin who looked threatening with the ball as the Sri Lankan batters were lucky to survive every time he came to the bowl. The right-arm off-spinner got rid of Pathum Nisanka’s wicket in the second innings to equal the great Kapil Dev’s record for being the second longest wicket-taker in the game.
In the first innings, Sri Lanka were eliminated for 174 runs, which is one run less than what Ravindra Jadeja scored in the game. Rohit Sharma asked the visitors to follow as they look to save the first Test match against India at Mohali.
