Ravichandran Ashwin on Sunday joined Muttiah Muralitharan in being the fastest to get to 350 Test wickets. Ashwin took one wicket on Day 5 of the first Test between South Africa and India in Visakhapatnam and he had taken seven in the South African first innings.
It is the first time in nearly a year that Ashwin was playing for India having been dropped for the entirety of the West Indies tour.
Ashwin had spoken of how he struggled to cope with days when he was not part of the team. In an interview with fielding coach R Sridhar that was put up on the BCCI’s website, he said that he does not aim for milestones and instead concentrates on being in the best mind space before a match.
