Ashwin, Jaiswal Seal Victory

In the first Test against West Indies in Dominica, Ravichandran Ashwin showcased his brilliance by claiming an impressive 12 wickets across two innings. This remarkable performance marked his eighth 10-wicket haul in Tests, equaling the record set by the legendary Anil Kumble. Additionally, Ashwin is now just one five-wicket haul away from matching Kumble’s record of 35. Combined with debutant Yashasvi Jaiswal’s outstanding 171, India secured a commanding victory by the third evening. Anil Kumble, India’s leading wicket-taker in Tests and JioCinema expert, praised Ashwin’s exceptional efforts, which became the best performance by any Indian bowler in the West Indies. 

Kumble Praises Ashwin's Skills

According to JioCinema, former India captain and coach Anil Kumble lauded Ravichandran Ashwin’s exceptional skills, highlighting how he masterfully plays with the batsmen’s minds. Kumble emphasized that it’s not just about the technical abilities but also the art of transferring pressure onto the batters, which was evident in the body language of every batsman facing Ashwin. 

Kumble Lauds Ashwin's Strategy

Kumble also praised Ashwin’s strategic use of the crease, especially against the left-handers from the West Indies team. He pointed out Ashwin’s brilliant dismissal of opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul, where he cleverly bowled wide off the crease to deceive the batsman. 

Ashwin Surpasses Harbhajan's Record

On the statistical front, Ashwin’s splendid performance saw him surpass Harbhajan Singh to become the second-highest wicket-taker for India in international cricket. With an outstanding showing of 12 wickets in the match, comprising 5/60 in the first innings and 7/71 in the second innings, Ashwin now has 709 wickets in 271 international matches. Kumble also commended Ashwin’s ability to read the pitch accurately and adapt his bowling accordingly. The second Test between India and West Indies is scheduled to start on July 20.
