Ashwin architect of a win over anemic Lanka

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

Despite having good batting conditions, Sri Lanka failed to press home the advantage and lost by a very huge margin. Virat Kohli with the bat and ace off spinner Ashwin played a pivotal role in this emphatic win. Sri Lanka's bowling may be toothless but the way Kohli accumulated runs in the match, he has touched a purple patch in his illustrious carrier. Kohli has not lost a single series after taking over as skipper of India team.Ashwin polished off the tail. Ashwin achieved the feat of completing 300 wickets in 54 matches in  Tests. Australian fast bowling legend Lillee had reached the milestone in 56 Test matches way back in 1981 and it took 36 years for another bowler to eclipse the record. Ashwin is also ahead of some  illustrious names, who had completed the milestone in quick time. Among them are Muttiah Muralitharan (58 Tests), Richard Hadlee, Malcolm Marshall and Dale Steyn (61 Tests each). Ashwin is only the fifth Indian bowler to complete a career 300 wickets in Test cricket.
