A spectacular match that came up to surprise well armed Royal Challengers Bangalore. Ravichandran Ashwin played a match winning role in this match as he claimed another astounding feat to his name.

It was just tactical and strategic Ravichandran Ashwin who showed the magic of spin against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday. He took the wickets of 3 players for just 17 runs in 4 overs and during this time he surpassed the record of two former Indian spinners.

India’s most successful T20 bowler
Ashwin took the wickets of Rajat Patidar, Shahbaz Ahmed and Suyash Prabhudesai against RCB to take his tally of wickets in T20 cricket to 271.

With this, Ashwin has become the highest wicket-taker Indian bowler in T20 cricket. Earlier this record was registered in the name of Piyush Chawla. Chawla has taken 270 T20 wickets in his career. Now, Ravichandran Ashwin achieved this feat while playing the 273rd T20 match of his career. He has taken 61 wickets in 51 international T20 matches played for India.

The most successful off-spinner in IPL history, while Ashwin also became the highest wicket-taker off-spinner in IPL. He left behind former off-spinner Harbhajan Singh in this matter. Bhajji took a total of 150 wickets in the IPL. After yesterday’s match, his IPL wickets tally has moved to 152. Ashwin has reached this stage playing 175th match in IPL. Surely, he will go on to make a big record as still he has a few years left in the IPL.

Ravichandran Ashwin, the sixth Indian to take more than 150 wickets in IPL, has recorded 152 wickets in 175 matches in IPL at an average of 28.04 and economy of 6.93. He has taken 152 wickets at a strike rate of 24.28. Ashwin is the eighth and sixth Indian bowler to take 150 or more wickets in the IPL.

Rishi Dhawan: A Brilliant Comeback For The Punjab Kings

Before him, Dwayne Bravo (181), Lasith Malinga (170), Amit Mishra (166), Piyush Chawla (157), Yuzvendra Chahal (157), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (151) and Harbhajan Singh (150) have reached this position. In the case of taking most IPL wickets, Ashwin has now reached the sixth position.

In current environment, off spin really seemed to vanish from the short format. Despite the nature of the game, Ravichandran Ashwin has achieved this stature which is praise worthy.
