Ravichandran Ashwin is on the verge of surpassing Kapil Dev and Anil Kumble against Australia.

Ravichandran Ashwin is on the verge of surpassing Kapil Dev and Anil Kumble against Australia.

Ravichandran Ashwin, a veteran India spinner, is close to eclipsing some of the big records held by Anil Kumble and Kapil Dev. As India hosts Australia in the third Test of the four-match series at the Holkar Cricket Ground in Indore, Ashwin has the chance to set new records.

The veteran off-break bowler is only eight wickets away from matching Anil Kumble’s Border-Gavaskar Trophy record of 111 wickets against Australia. Moreover, Ashwin (686 wickets) is only two wickets away from surpassing Kapil Dev’s international record of 687 wickets.

Ashwin will want to take advantage of the fact that India still has two games remaining ahead to the ODI series against Australia in order to reach the big benchmarks. In the first two Tests, Ashwin’s outstanding bowling performance was on display as he took 14 wickets. Ashwin has proven to be a critical cog in the team’s machine.
Test at Indore is essential for Australia
Rohit Sharma and co. convincingly retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy despite their total defeat in the first and second Tests. In addition, Australia’s search for a spot in the finals of the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 cycle continues as a result of consecutive defeats.

Significantly, Australia has not had success on Indian soil since the 2004/05 season, when they last won a series. With two games remaining in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Australia will attempt to tie the series. Steve Smith is captaining the team for the third Test, while Pat Cummins was forced to return home for family reasons.

Team India is on the verge of securing a spot in the ICC tournament’s championship match. Team India, under by Rohit Sharma, needs only one victory from their final two red-ball contests to formally claim the position. Following the conclusion of the Test series, the two cricketing powerhouses will begin a three-match ODI series on March 17 at the legendary Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
