Ravichandran Ashwin broke Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag’s record in Test cricket

The recently concluded Test series between India and West Indies didn’t have the best of ending as the last match got washed off due to rain and wet outfield. But still it was a good series for India as there were lots of positive and India won the series 2-0.

Indian team had lots of positives but the biggest one was Ravichandran Ashwin’s all-round form. Ashwin ended up as the leading wicket-taker in the four-match series with 17 wickets while more surprisingly, he finished in the fourth spot of highest run-getters in the series with 235 runs – only 16 runs behind the top-ranked Kohli.

So it was no surprise that Ravichandran Ashwin won the man of the series award. It was Ravichandran Ashwin’s 6th man of the series award and with this award, he went past Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag as the Indian cricketer with the most number of Man of the Series awards.
