Ashwin commanded the team in Ranchi Test, captained for the first time, know the reason

Indian cricket team's star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took a wicket in the Ranchi Test and became the first Indian to score 1000 runs and 100 Test runs against any team. Apart from this, in the 79th over of the match, Ravichandran Ashwin was seen captaining in Test cricket for the first time. Ashwin has got this responsibility for the first time in his 99th Test match. Let us tell you that Jasprit Bumrah, who was the vice-captain of Team India in the Test series against England, has been ruled out of the Ranchi Test. Due to this, Ashwin was made the vice-captain for this match.

Why did Ashwin get the captaincy?

In the 79th over of England's batting, Indian captain Rohit Sharma walked out of the field for some reason. Meanwhile, team vice-captain Ravichandran Ashwin was seen captaining the team. Ravindra Jadeja was bowling in this over. Dinesh Karthik, who was commenting in English, was heard saying that Ashwin is now the captain. However, Rohit Sharma returned after just one over and was seen as the captain again. But this was a very proud moment for Ashwin. He completed 500 Test wickets for India in the last match and became the second Indian bowler after Anil Kumble to do so.

Bairstow's wicket created history

Ravichandran Ashwin created history by taking the wicket of Jonny Bairstow on the first day of Ranchi Test. He completed 100 Test wickets against England and became the first Indian to do so. He also became the first Indian player to score 1000 runs and take 100 wickets against any team in the world. He became the fourth player in the world to do so against England.

Ashwin is nearing his 100th test

Ravichandran Ashwin was playing his 99th test match in Ranchi. He is close to playing his 100th test match. If he plays the fifth Test in Dharamsala, it will be the 100th Test of his career. He has 502 wickets in his name so far. He is the second highest wicket taker for India. Anil Kumble is the first player to take more than 600 wickets.
