Ravi Ashwin became second bowler after Anil Kumble to scalp 350 test wickets in India.

Veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin etched his name into the records book as he shattered legendary leg-spinner Anil Kumble’s long-standing test record for India at home conditions. On day 3 of the fourth test match between India and England at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin overtook former Indian captain Anil Kumble for the most wickets taken by a bowler in Indian conditions.

Ravichandran Ashwin achieved this historic feat after picking up England’s opener Ben Duckett and No.3 batter Ollie Pope in the second innings of the Ranchi test. After this, Ashwin trapped England’s batter Joe Root LBW and took his tally to 352* wickets for India at home conditions in test cricket.

Legendary leg-spinner Anil Kumble scalped 350 wickets in 63 matches in India at an impressive average of 24.88. While senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has taken 352* wickets in just 59 test games at home at a stunning average of 21.40.

In the third test match between India and England in Rajkot in February, 2024, Ravichandran Ashwin became second Indian bowler after Anil Kumble to pick 500 or more wickets in test cricket.

Most test wickets for India in home conditions

  • Ravichandran Ashwin – 352*
  • Anil Kumble – 350
  • Harbhajan Singh – 265
  • Kapil Dev – 219
  • Ravindra Jadeja – 210*

Earlier in the fourth test, Ravichandran Ashwin became the first Indian bowler to take 100 wickets against England in test cricket.

Talking about the match, Dhruv Jurel’s maiden half-century helped India lower the deficit against England in Ranchi. India finished their innings at 307 at lunch on day 3. England scored 120 losing five wickets in the second innings before tea on day 3. England currently lead by 166 runs. A target above 200 might be challenging in these conditions.
