RAVICHAN­DRAN ASH­WIN

RHB, ROS

ABC Cricket - - PROFILES -

Ash­win reached 300 Test wick­ets faster than any bowler be­fore him, break­ing Den­nis Lillee’s pre­vi­ous record in his 54th match. Im­pres­sive as it ap­pears, it’s a feat tem­pered by the spin-friendly con­di­tions he plays in at home: more than two-thirds of his wick­ets have come in In­dia, at an av­er­age just short of 23; his av­er­age away is al­most 32.
