New Delhi: Team India veteran bowler Ravichandran Ashwin has a chance to create history in the first Test match against South Africa. Ashwin can perform the fastest 350 Test wickets for India. With this, he has a great chance to match the pass world record. The Indian playing XI has been announced for this Test match to be played in Visakhapatnam.
On Tuesday, captain Virat Kohli announced the names of the last eleven players to play in this match against South Africa. Ashwin, who sat out in the West Indies Test series, will get a chance to play in the first Test. Off-spinner R Ashwin will have a chance to complete 350 wickets in Test cricket against South Africa.
