Incidentally,Ravichandra Ashwin is closer to getting to 100 wickets than Vernon Philander is in the same number of Tests. The thing is that he next plays against South Africa in South Africa. I am not sure if South Africa is due to play any Test series in the interim. Philander is on 89 wickets and I think Ashwin is on 91. So the race is really on. Lohmann of course go there in 16 Tests !

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Subash Jayaraman
Subash's introduction to cricket began with enduring sledging from his brothers during their many backyard cricket sessions. His fascination with the game took hold in 1983, but mostly it was the cricket commentary over All India Radio, about the water-tight front-foot defence of Gavaskar that did it. @thecricketcouch
