Team India, who won one after another, is now ready to face Sri Lanka in their own home. Earlier, in Sri Lanka, the Indian team had also proved to be the toughest game of the lameai team in the Test series. From 16 November, team India and Sri Lanka will face face-off in the first Test in Kolkata. India's first match against Sri Lanka in Test matches will be on this field.
India's star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be looking into the Test matches with Sri Lanka this time. With Ravindra Jadeja, Ashwin has also returned to the Test team. Both had been kept out of Team India for a long time. But in the Test matches, Team India's bowling will rest on the shoulders of both of them. In this case, most of the eyes will be on Ashwin.
Most eyes will be on Ashwin's performance, because he can do a great job in this series. If Ashwin gets his 8th wicket in the three Test series, he will become the player who takes 300 wickets at the fastest speed in the world in Test matches. In the previous series against Sri Lanka, Ashwin got 17 wickets. It will not be difficult for Ashwin to take 8 wickets in 3 Test matches played in India.
The record of taking 300 wickets at the fastest pace in Test matches is in the name of Australian bowler Dennis Lilley. He did this feat in 56 Test matches. But Ashwin can make this record before her name. Right now Ashwin has made 292 wickets in 52 Tests. As such, Ashwin has so far claimed 38 wickets in six bouts against Sri Lanka. The record of taking the most wickets in Test cricket is named after Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan. Murali has taken 800 wickets in 133 Test matches.
Among the highest wicket-takers, Shane Warne is second and Anil Kumble is at number three. In the case of most wicket-takers, Ashwin is number 32 in the worldImage Copyright: Google/wikipedia
