Left-handers' kryptonite - R Ashwin joins Club 400

February 25 2021

Ashwin holds the Indian record for the fastest, in terms of number of Tests, to milestones of 100 wickets, 200 wickets, and 300 wickets.

When he trapped Jofra Archer in front of the wicket of the second ball of the 24th over in England's second dig, Ravichandran Ashwin reached the esteemed milestone of 400 Test wickets, becoming the 16th player to do so.

Here's a look into his fantastic decade-long journey in numbers.

77 Tests taken by Ashwin to the 400-wicket milestone - the second quickest among all bowers apart from Muttiah Muralitharan who reached there in five fewer Tests. Overall, Ashwin is the 16th bowler to reach the landmark and fourth Indian after Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.

Ashwin also holds the Indian record for the fastest, in terms of number of Tests, to milestones of 100 wickets (18), 200 wickets (37) as well as 300 wickets (54).

Fewest Tests to 400 wickets

Player Tests Team Avg SR Days from debut
M Muralitharan 72 SL 23.71 60.2 3428
R Ashwin 77 Ind 24.95 53.0 3400
Richard Hadlee 80 NZ 22.12 50.8 6212
Dale Steyn 80 SA 22.49 41.6 3878
Rangana Herath 84 SL 27.82 59.6 6586
Anil Kumble 85 Ind 28.40 67.2 5173
Glenn McGrath 87 Aus 21.65 51.4 3266
* Average and SR calculated at end of the innings in which milestone was reached

21242 - Balls bowled by Ashwin to reach the 400-wicket landmark - the quickest among the six spinners surpassing Rangana Herath's previous best of 23835 balls. Even if you take the fast bowlers into account, only four have reached the milestone in fewer deliveries than him - Dale Steyn, Richard Hadlee, Glenn McGrath and Wasim Akram.

22.19 - Ashwin's average in 46 Tests at home (278 wickets). Among spinners with 150-plus wickets in home Tests, only Muralitharan (19.56) and Ravindra Jadeja (21.06) have a higher average than Ashwin. In these 46 Tests, Ashwin has picked 23 five-wicket hauls - one every second Test - only behind that of Muralitharan (45), Herath (26) and Kumble (25).

Best average among spinners in home Tests (150-plus wickets)

Player Mat Wkts Avg SR 5-fers 10-fers
M Muralitharan 73 493 19.56 50.8 45 15
Ravindra Jadeja 33 157 21.06 56.1 7 1
R Ashwin 46 278 22.19 48.3 23 6
Rangana Herath 49 278 23.65 51.3 26 7
Anil Kumble 63 350 24.88 59.4 25 7
Shane Warne 69 319 26.39 60.8 15 4
Abdul Qadir 40 168 26.82 62.2 12 4
29.97 - Ashwin's average in Tests outside Asia since the start of 2018 - a period in which is widely considered as the renaissance of fast bowling. Among those spinners with at least 150 overs bowled outside Asia in this period, only Ravindra Jadeja has a better average (27.31) than Ashwin.

205 - Left-handed victims for Ashwin among his tally of 401 wickets, 14 more than Muralitharan's aggregate of 191 southpaws among his 800 scalps. Southpaws constitute 51.1% of Ashwin's wickets - among the 79 bowlers with 200-plus Test wickets no other bowler has a higher share of left-handers.

Highest share of LHB (200+ wickets)

Bowler Wkts LHB LHB %
R Ashwin 401 205 205 %
Graeme Swann 255 121 121 %
Trent Boult 281 122 122 %
Zaheer Khan 311 133 133 %
Kemar Roach 205 82 82 %
Morne Morkel 309 121 121 %
Yasir Shah 235 89 89 %
Nathan Lyon 399 147 147 %
11 - Number of times Ashwin got the better of Ben Stokes - the most he has dismissed an opposition batsman. Stokes is followed by David Warner (10), Alastair Cook (9), Ed Cowan (7) and James Anderson (7). Of the 12 batsmen Ashwin has dismissed six times of more, ten of them are left-handers. Among right-handers, his most frequent victims include Steven Smith and Marlon Samuels six times each.

82 - Wickets taken by Ashwin in 13 Tests in the 2016-17 season - the most by any bowler in a season in Test cricket. He averaged 25.28 in 13 home Tests in 2016-17 taking seven five-fers and three ten-wicket hauls, including his best innings figures of 7/59 and best match figures of 13/140.

134 - Wickets taken by Ashwin when he has opened the bowling in an innings, at an average of 19.51 and he strikes once every 40.8 balls. Since his debut in November 2011, only nine bowlers have taken more wickets while taking the new ball and none of them are spinners and none have a better average or strike rate than Ashwin. In the first 15 overs with the new ball, Ashwin averages 21.67 and has a strike rate of 46.7.

Ahmedabad pink-ball Test: Shortest completed match since 1935

Axar and Root dominate the stats analysis in a game dominated by spin bowlers


25-Feb-2021
0 Completed Tests since World War II to last fewer balls than the Ahmedabad Test (842 balls). The day-night Test match at Motera is now the seventh shortest completed Test match and the shortest since 1935.

77 Matches taken for Ravichandran Ashwin to complete 400 wickets in Test cricket. Muttiah Muralitharan is the only player to have reached the milestone quicker than Ashwin. The Sri Lankan got to the 400th Test wicket in his 72nd Test match.


387 Lowest Match aggregate in a completed Test match in Asia. The previous lowest was the 2002 Test between Pakistan and Australia at Sharjah (422 runs). The Ahmedabad Test is also the lowest aggregated Test in the last 74 years.


81 England's second innings total at Motera, the second-lowest Test total by any team against India. South Africa's total of 79 in the first innings of the 2015 Nagpur Test still remains the lowest Test total against India. England's previous lowest Test total against India was 101, way back in 1971 at The Oval.


193 Runs scored by England across both the innings. This is the first instance of a team being bundled out twice in a Test match in India with an aggregate of less than 200 runs. The previous lowest was 212 runs that was made by India and Afghanistan - against Australia and India respectively. This was also just the second Test since 1904 for England where they were bowled out twice in a Test with an aggregate lower than 193 runs. England were all-out for 93 and 82 respectively against New Zealand in Christchurch,1984.

0 Balls bowled by the pace bowlers in the second innings of both teams in this Test. This is only the second instance in a Test that yielded a result where only spinners bowled in the 3rd and 4th innings. R Ashwin , Axar Patel and Washington Sundar bowled for India while Jack Leach and Joe Root bowled for England.

8 Runs conceded by Joe Root for his five-wicket haul. Only once has a spinner taken a five-for conceding fewer runs: Australia's Bert Ironmonger, a left-arm spinner, took 5 for 6 against South Africa way back in 1932*. Two other Australians feature among the top four such cases: Tim May conceded nine runs and took five wickets against West Indies at the Adelaide Oval in 1993, while Michael Clarke took 6 for 9 in Mumbai, 2004.

1 Instance of a ten-wicket win in Test cricket with a first-innings total lower than the 145 scored by India. England came back to defeat Australia by ten wickets in Birmingham in 1909 after they were bundled out for only 121 in the first-innings.

11/70 The cheapest ten-wicket Test match haul for India, achieved by Axar. The previous record was held by Ashwin who gave away only 85 runs for his 12 wickets against New Zealand during the 2012 Test match in Hyderabad. Axar also now holds the best match figures in a Day-Night Test going past Pat Cummins who took 10 for 62 against Sri Lanka in Brisbane.

3 Number of Indians with five-wicket hauls in three or more consecutive Test innings before Axar. Harbhajan Singh in 2001, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan in 1984 and Javagal Srinath in 1999 were the others to have achieved this rare feat. The overall record is with Charlie Turner from Australia who had taken six consecutive five-wicket hauls.

* 0300GMT: The piece had originally said that Root's eight runs is the fewest for a five-for by a spinner, because it was believed that Ironmonger bowled medium pace as well. This has been corrected after confirming that Ironmonger was indeed a spinner.

Axar Patel, Man of the Match: When it happens, it feels so easy. I am not thinking much. I want to continue this form. I am happy that if I am not contributing with the bat, I am doing it with the ball. My strength is to bowl wicket-to-wicket and not give him room. The mindset of batters is they play out couple of maidens, they either go for a sweep or try to hit over the infield. They call me Wasim bhai (Wasim Akram) because they feel my arm ball is very lethal. Ajju Bhai (Ajinkya Rahane) called me that and Pant has picked it up. I would want this wicket to remain the same for the final Test as well as I am picking up wickets.

43 year old!

ESPNcricinfo

ASK STEVEN
When was the last time a spinner struck with the first ball of a Test innings?
And does Flavian Aponso still hold the record for being the oldest batsman to score a fifty in a World Cup?


Flavian Aponso, who made 58 in the 1996 World Cup at age 43 years and 121 days, remains the oldest player to score a fifty in a World Cup Associated Press
I played in the 1996 World Cup for the Holland team, and scored a fifty against Pakistan. I was 43 at the time, and was told it was a World Cup record - is that still the case? asked Flavian Aponso from England
It's always great to receive a question from the horse's mouth, as it were - so I'm pleased to be able to confirm that Flavian Aponso remains the oldest batsman to make a half-century in the World Cup: he was aged 43 years 121 days when he scored 58 for Netherlands against Pakistan in Lahore in March 1996. The only other 40-year-old to reach 50 in a World Cup innings was Misbah-ul-Haq of Pakistan, but he was still around two months short of his 41st birthday when he made four half-centuries in the 2015 World Cup.

Aponso was close to selection for Sri Lanka before he joined a disapproved tour of South Africa. He says: "After completing 25 years in the Netherlands as a professional cricketer and coach, I moved to the UK in 2005 and got involved with three clubs in Harrow for cricket coaching for juniors. I conduct some private coaching sessions as well - it's a nice way for this 68-plus 'old man' to stay involved in cricket. All my siblings are in Sri Lanka, and I usually visit them for Christmas."

Which is rarer: stumped in both innings of a Test, run out in both, or caught and bowled in both? asked Bob Metcalfe from England
There have been 25 instances of a batsman being run out in both innings of a Test, by 23 players - it happened to the Australian pair of Ian Healy and Mark Taylor twice. The most recent double victim was Cheteshwar Pujara, for India against South Africa in Centurion in 2017-18.

Some 23 different batsmen have been out stumped in both innings (none of them twice). The most recent cases both happened in 2019-20: by Rohit Sharma for India against South Africa in Visakhapatnam in October 2019 (he did make 176 and 127, which probably made up for it), and Sikandar Raza of Zimbabwe against Sri Lanka in Harare three months later.

But only 21 batsmen have been caught and bowled in both innings - the most recent was Ross Taylor, for New Zealand against England in Hamilton in 2007-08, the third of his 105 Tests to date. He gave a return catch to Kevin Pietersen in the first innings and Monty Panesar in the second: only four batsmen - John Trumble (on debut in 1884-85), Everton Weekes (for 162 and 101 in 1948-49), Keith Miller (in 1950-51) and Richie Benaud (in 1960-61) - have been caught and bowled by the same man in both innings.

Which England players have the most runs and wickets in Tests at Lord's without appearing on the honours boards there? asked Thim Ponnappa from the United States
The man with the most Test runs at Lord's without the aid of a century - which would have meant his name would be enshrined on the honours board in the dressing room - is the former England captain Michael Atherton. He amassed 852 runs in 15 Tests at Lord's, but his highest score was 99, agonisingly run out against Australia in 1993. Next comes Graham Thorpe, who made 711 runs in 13 Lord's Tests, with a highest score of 89.

The leading overseas player is Sunil Gavaskar, with 340 runs in five Tests at Lord's, with a highest of 59 - although Gavaskar's name does appear on the honours board, as he scored 188 for the World XI in the MCC Bicentenary match at Lord's in 1987, which MCC treat like a Test.

For the bowlers, Matthew Hoggard took 37 wickets in 11 Tests at Lord's without the five-for that would have got him on the honours board (his best return was 4 for 27). The 1950s left-arm spinner Johnny Wardle claimed 23, and Australia's Shane Warne 19, in four appearances, without a five-for.

Story Image
R Ashwin's wicket of Rory Burns in England's second innings was the first time in more than 130 years that a spinner had struck with the first ball of a Test innings BCCI
I noticed Jofra Archer has got out in every Test innings he has batted in so far, despite usually coming in at No. 9 or 10. Which tailender has had the most innings without a not-out? asked Chris Harper from England
As I write, England's Jofra Archer has had 18 innings in Tests and been dismissed in every one of them. As this table shows, he's well down the overall list, which is headed by Sri Lanka's Kaushal Silva, who was out in every one of his 74 Test innings, 12 more than Pakistan's Salman Butt. Quite where Archer stands in relation to other tailenders depends how you classify them: the West Indian fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, who I think fits the bill, has so far been out in all his 24 Test innings. The Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Guy de Alwis was dismissed in all his 19 Test innings, despite never going in above No. 8.

Ravichandran Ashwin took a wicket with the first ball of England's second innings in the first Test. When was the last time a spinner struck with the first ball of a Test innings? asked Jatin Moghal from India
R Ashwin dismissed Rory Burns with the first ball of England's second innings in the first Test in Chennai. It was the first such instance in a Test for more than 130 years, since slow left-armer Bobby Peel nabbed Alec Bannerman with the first ball of Australia's follow-on at Old Trafford in 1888.

At first sight it would appear as if South Africa's Bert Vogler did the same against England, trapping Tom Hayward lbw with the first ball of the match at The Oval in 1907. Vogler was usually a legspinner, but the match report in The Times the following day says "Vogler started with a few fast overs". Some things never change: the newspaper added that "Hayward appeared to be dissatisfied with the decision."

Root in record book beat peter May

Ahmedabad pink-ball Test: Shortest completed match since 1935

Axar and Root dominate the stats analysis in a game dominated by spin bowlers


25-Feb-2021

0 Completed Tests since World War II to last fewer balls than the Ahmedabad Test (842 balls). The day-night Test match at Motera is now the seventh shortest completed Test match and the first since 1935.


77 Matches taken for Ravichandran Ashwin to complete 400 wickets in Test cricket. Muttiah Muralitharan is the only player to have reached the milestone quicker than Ashwin. The Sri Lankan got to the 400th Test wicket in his 72nd Test match.


387 Lowest Match aggregate in a completed Test match in Asia. The previous lowest was the 2002 Test between Pakistan and Australia at Sharjah (422 runs). The Ahmedabad Test is also the lowest aggregated Test in the last 74 years.

81 England's second innings total at Motera, the second-lowest Test total by any team against India. South Africa's total of 79 in the first innings of the 2015 Nagpur Test still remains the lowest Test total against India. England's previous lowest Test total against India was 101, way back in 1971 at The Oval.

193 Runs scored by England across both the innings. This is the first instance of a team being bundled out twice in a Test match in India with an aggregate of less than 200 runs. The previous lowest was 212 runs that was made by India and Afghanistan - against Australia and India respectively. This was also just the second Test since 1904 for England where they were bowled out twice in a Test with an aggregate lower than 193 runs. England were all-out for 93 and 82 respectively against New Zealand in Christchurch,1984.

0 Balls bowled by the pace bowlers in the second innings of both teams in this Test. This is only the second instance in a Test that yielded a result where only spinners bowled in the 3rd and 4th innings. R Ashwin , Axar Patel and Washington Sundar bowled for India while Jack Leach and Joe Root bowled for England.

8 Runs conceded by Joe Root for his five-wicket haul. This was the cheapestfive-wicket haul by a spin bowler in the history of Test cricket. The previous record by a spinner was held by Tim May who conceded nine runs and took five wickets against West Indies at the Adelaide Oval in 1993. Michael Clarke also conceded nine during his six-wicket haul against India in Mumbai, 2004. (Bert Ironmonger took 5 for 6 against South Africa in 1932, but he hasn't been included in this list because he is categorised as a bowler who bowled both medium-pace and left-arm spin.)

1 Instance of a ten-wicket win in Test cricket with a first-innings total lower than the 145 scored by India. England came back to defeat Australia by ten wickets in Birmingham in 1909 after they were bundled out for only 121 in the first-innings.

11/70 The cheapest ten-wicket Test match haul for India, achieved by Axar. The previous record was held by Ashwin who gave away only 85 runs for his 12 wickets against New Zealand during the 2012 Test match in Hyderabad. Axar also now holds the best match figures in a Day-Night Test going past Pat Cummins who took 10 for 62 against Sri Lanka in Brisbane.

3 Number of Indians with five-wicket hauls in three or more consecutive Test innings before Axar. Harbhajan Singh in 2001, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan in 1984 and Javagal Srinath in 1999 were the others to have achieved this rare feat. The overall record is with Charlie Turner from Australia who had taken six consecutive five-wicket hauls.
