Few names in Indian cricket history are as dazzling as that of Ravichandran Ashwin, who is set to go down in history with cricket greats like Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar. In the stunning city of Dharamsala, on Saturday, Ashwin will play in his 100th Test match against England. With this accomplishment, he joins an exclusive group of just 13 Indian players who have captained their country at least 100 times. Tendulkar, the renowned captain of Indian cricket, holds the record with 200 Test matches.

Ashwin’s journey has been nothing short of extraordinary thus far. With 610 wickets to his name, he is now the second most prolific wicket-taker for India in Test cricket, only exceeded by the legendary Anil Kumble. He was the first Indian to reach 500 wickets in the quickest time ever, setting a new record. Ashwin currently has a stellar 507 points.

In the most recent victory over England in the fourth Test, he was a key player. With five wickets remained, India was able to win with just five wickets needed after his five-wicket haul in the second innings destroyed the English batting order. His remarkable talent and important service to the team were showcased in this performance.

Throughout the series, Ashwin has gone on to smash records. Most notably, he became the first player from India to score over a thousand runs and take 100 wickets in a single match. He solidified his legacy by surpassing Kumble as the greatest wicket-taker for India in Test matches played at home after tying Kumble’s record with his 35th five-wicket haul in the fourth Test match against England.

In acknowledgment of the enormous impact his father has had on both his life and career, Ashwin dedicated his historic achievement of taking his 500th wicket in a Test match to his father. “I would like to dedicate this to my father; he’s responsible for everything I’ve done in my life,” Ashwin stated, expressing the very personal significance of his accomplishments.

In a heartfelt tribute to the profound influence his father has wielded over his life and illustrious cricket career, Ravichandran Ashwin recently dedicated his monumental milestone of securing his 500th Test match wicket to his father. With deep gratitude, Ashwin remarked, “I would like to dedicate this to my father; he’s responsible for everything I’ve done in my life.” This statement not only underscores the personal importance of Ashwin’s achievement but also shines a light on the emotional foundation behind his success.
