Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Sunday became the first bowler to dismiss 200 left-handed batsmen in Test cricket. Ashwin achieved the unique distinction on Day 2 of the second Test between India and England. The 34-year-old further registered his 29th five-wicket haul in Test cricket, equalling former Australian pacer Glenn McGrath’s tally on the all-time list. Ashwin and McGrath occupy the joint-seventh spot in the list. “What a spell from R Ashwin! He claimed his 29th Test five-wicket haul – the joint-seventh in the all-time list with Glenn McGrath,” read the caption on a tweet from ICC’s official account, acknowledging the achievement.

Legendary Australian cricketers Shane Warne and McGrath occupy the fourth and fifth spot on the list, with 172 dismissals apiece.

Ashwin further surpassed fellow spinner Harbhajan Singh on the list of bowlers who have registered the highest dismissals in Test cricket in India. The 34-year-old — who has taken 268 wickets at home now — jumped to the second spot on the list, pushing Harbhajan who has accounted for 265 dismissals in 55 matches to the third spot.
