R Ashwin Was One Wicket Away From Chasing 500 Wicket Milestone

R Ashwin Was One Wicket Away From Chasing 500 Wicket Milestone: On Day 4, India finally defeated England and won the match in the second test in Vizag.

In that second test match, Ravichandran Ashwin took 3 wickets, if he had taken one more wicket, he may reached the 500 wickets milestone and become the second Indian bowler who reached the 500 wickets milestone.

“Ashwin was just chasing milestone”: Pieterson

Anil Kumble is the first Indian bowler who had reached the 500 wickets milestone. And now in the next place, Ravichandran Ashwin is with 499 wickets and one more wicket ahead of the 500 wicket milestone.

Speaking to Jio Cinema after India’s 106-run win over England on Monday, Pieterson said that,

“Ashwin was just chasing milestone. That’s why he didn’t bowl as well as he could have bowled. He did get it right on occasion. I thought he was way more threatening bowling wider outside off-stump around the wicket.

I think he bowled over the wicket way too much to the right-handers. He can change bowling over-bowling around-bowling over more.”

“I’m certainly never going to say that he hasn’t got it or the England bowlers have found him out. He is a tremendous bowler and he’s got some big breakthroughs. It is about the team; it’s not about the individual.

He will want one more wicket and when he gets that maybe you’ll see him a lot more relaxed, the shoulder drops and I can just now get on with the game.”
