India vs England Ashwin Record: After eliminating Afghanistan in the three-match T20 series, Team India will host England in the five-match Test series starting on January 25. India last lost a Test series at home against England in 2012. Since then, Team India has not lost a Test series at home even once to any team. England won the World Series under the captaincy of Alastair Cook. Now under the captaincy of Ben Stokes, England will aim to repeat the 12-year-old feat.

However, Indian pitches will definitely help the spinners as has been the case in India in the last few years. In such a situation, Ravichandran Ashwin has been the most dangerous player for the opposition teams on the home ground and England will also come out with a plan against him. Even though he has not been dominant away from home, especially in SENA countries, Ashwin remains Team India’s first choice at home and in Asia as well.

Ashwin has a chance to make a record

The off-spinner will aim to create a strong record for India in the upcoming Test series against England. He has so far taken 88 wickets against England in 35 innings at an average of 28.59, in which he also has six five-wicket hauls in his name. He is just eight wickets away from becoming the highest wicket-taker for India against England in the longest format of the game. Currently, Bhagwat Chandrashekhar tops the list with 95 wickets in 38 innings and has the feat of taking eight five-wicket hauls.

This bowler took the most wickets

James Anderson tops the list in terms of taking most wickets in India vs England Test matches. So far, he has taken 139 wickets in 66 innings with seven four-wicket hauls and six five-wicket hauls. Talking about Ashwin, he also has a chance to complete 100 wickets against England and he is only 12 wickets away from doing so. Which he can do during this series.
