IND vs AUS 1st Test Match Report

Stumps Day 1 

Great bowling showcase from Indian seamers. However, early wickets for team India seems not be working as Steave Smith and Marnus Labuschagne are looking dangerous. It’s 1st Test lunch break and Australia are 75/2. 

Tug of war between Nathon Lyon and R Ashwin! If picked 11 wickets in the current game, Ashwin acquires Lyon’s number 8th position in most wickets in a Test career! Ashwin ranks at 9th position with 449 wickets into his accounts and Lyon on 8th with 460 wickets. 

Ashwin completes 450 Wickets In Test

It’s a significant achievement and a testament to his talent and consistency. Ashwin is considered one of the best spin bowlers in the world and has been a key player for India in the longest format of the game. Reaching 450 wickets is a significant milestone in any spin bowler’s career, and Ashwin can be proud of his accomplishments in Test cricket.
