Ravichandran Ashwin on Friday scripted a couple of records when he took 6 wickets against Australia in the 2nd day of the 4th and final Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy in the Narendra Modi Stadium.
The wily veteran became the leading-wicket taker among Indian bowlers against Australia and also the joint-leading wicket-taker in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with 113 wickets.
He also surpassed India legend Anil Kumble and became the bowler with the most 5-wicket haul in India with 26.
In the match, India dismissed Australia for 480 on the second day of the series-deciding fourth Test.
Ashwin was the most successful bowler for India as he picked up five wickets on the second day, while Axar Patel managed to remove Usman Khawaja.Mohammed Shami (2/134) had taken two wickets on day one.
Earlier, resuming the day at 255 for 4, Khawaja and Cameron Green (114) kept batting with ease as they added another 123 runs to consolidate Australia’s position.
After a barren morning session, Ashwin dismissed Green and Carey (0) in a space of four balls, before getting rid of Mitchell Starc (6).
Patel then trapped Khawaja, but Todd Murphy (41) and Nathan Lyon (34) added another 70 runs to frustrate India.
Ashwin returned to pick the remaining two wickets.
