Ashwin took the wicket of every Australian player in the series
Border Gavaskar became the first player to score one in the series
New Delhi. Even before coming to India, Ravichandran Ashwin was in awe of the Australian team. To deal with the off-spinner, the Kangaroos also resorted to his duplicate. However, this ploy failed and the Australian batter looked battered in front of Ashwin throughout the series. Ashwin did not miss the record even on the last day of the last Test match being played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. As soon as the right-arm off-spinner took the wicket of Australian batsman Matthew Kuhneman in the first session of the fifth day, an amazing achievement was registered in his name.
Actually, Australia tried 15 players in the series of 4 Test matches and Ashwin did the trick of getting all these players out. No kangaroo could escape his spin. Ashwin has also become the highest wicket-taker in this series.
With the wicket of Matthew Kuhneman, he has taken a total of 25 wickets in 4 matches. He is followed by Ravindra Jadeja, who has taken 22 wickets. Australian spinner Nathan Lyon has also taken 22 wickets in the series. Ashwin has also become the first bowler to take 25 or more wickets twice in the Border Gavaskar series. He took 29 wickets in the 2012-13 series.
