Sourav Ganguly praises Ravichandran Ashwin's contribution to Team India
New Delhi : BCCI President Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday hailed Ravichandran Ashwin for his contribution to Team India as he won the title for decade's leading wicket-taker in the international circuit.
Tweeting about his achievement, he claimed that several times his contribution goes unnoticed.
“Most international wickets for Ashwin this decade? @ashwinravi99 ? @bcci .. what an effort .. just get a Feeling it goes unnoticed at times .. super stuff ..” Ganguly wrote in his tweet.
In the list released by the ICC, R Ashiwn took the top spot with 564 wickets, he was followed by English bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad, who scalped 535 and 525 wickets respectively.
Interestingly, R Ashwin happened to be the only spinner who made the cut.
R Ashwin, who had made a debut in 2010, has established himself as the most successful bowler in the world. The 33-year-old, who has not featured in the limited-overs format for almost two years now, still proves to be a lethal option in the longer format of the game.
He is the fastest Indian to reach 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300 and 350 wickets in Test cricket.
