Ind vs Eng 2nd Test 2nd day – R Ashwin


“Obviously the ball turning away from the left-hander is one very big advantage when it comes to offspinners”

Having played 76 largely successful Tests, R Ashwin is now at a stage of his career where every achievement takes him to a milestone. During the second day’s play in Chennai, he took his 29th five-for, going level at the seventh position overall with Glenn McGrath. It was fitting that during a conversation around a DRS review caught on the stump mic, Ashwin showed McGrath-like memory of his wickets, telling Virat Kohli to go for the review because he had got the batsman out in a similar fashion after a DRS review in the Mohali Test back in 2016. This time, though, the bounce in the Chennai pitch had the ball sailing over, but McGrath would be proud of the memory displayed by Ashwin.
