Wow Ashwin, wow! Akram’s record was broken a day ago, now equals Bhajji

Veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin of the Indian cricket team broke the record of most Test wickets held by Pakistan legend Wasim Akram a day earlier. Turbanator Harbhajan Singh equalized by dismissing Will Young just before the stumps of the fourth day of the Kanpur Test today. Ashwin has 417 wickets in Test cricket, while Harbhajan Singh also has 417 wickets in 103 Tests.

In this way, Ashwin’s name will be a chance to overtake Bhajji in this Test, as the Indian team has given a target of 284 runs to New Zealand in the first Test. One wicket has fallen, while 9 wickets are left. On a pitch conducive to spinners, Ashwin still has a chance to take several wickets. Let us inform that former Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram took 414 wickets in 104 Test matches.
