Ravichandran Ashwin became the talk of the town after delivering a terrific century in the second innings of India’s second test match against England at his home ground Chepauk, Chennai. Entire internet came up with tweets lauding the 34 year old who already claimed legend status with his batting and bowling skills. Prithi Ashwin, wife of the all rounder, came up with a number of adorable tweets to celebrate her husband’s terrific knock and the most special one is a photoshopped picture of “Ashwin” as “Vaathi”.
Ashwin scored his fifth test century on the third day of second test and it was also the third instance of Ashwin getting a hundred and five wicket haul in the same match. The century of the right hander came in 134 balls with the help of 14 boundaries and one maximum. His partnership with Kohli and Siraj helped team India to post a huge total of 482 runs as a target for England.

After taking five wickets in the first innings, many criticized the “Chepauk” pitch by saying that it is a spinner friendly “bad” pitch. However, Ashwin has displayed a master class on how to bat by hitting 14 boundaries and one six. Now, he already took a wicket in the second innings of England and is highly expected to pick four more wickets to become a player who scored century and 10fer in a same match.
