The 35-year-old all-rounder is now India’s joint second-highest wicket-taker for India in Test cricket, behind only the legendary Anil Kumble, who has picked up 619 wickets. While that figure might be out of his grasp, Ashwin could still surpass Dale Steyn’s record, who had scalped 439 Test wickets during his stint with the South African team.
