Team India all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin was the architect of India’s three-wicket win over Bangladesh in the second Test at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Sunday (December 25). Ashwin remained unbeaten 42 as India chased down 145 to win, thanks to his 71-run partnership for the eighth wicket with Shreyas Iyer.
Ashwin was also adjudged the ‘Player-of-the-match’ for his six wickets in the game as well. On the course of his match-winning knock, Ashwin also smashed the world record of highest score by a No. 9 batter in a successful chase in Test. The Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan Royals off-spinner broke the record of former West Indies pacer Winston Benjamin, who had scored 40 not out against Pakistan in 1988 Test. The other highest score at No. 9 in successful chase came off the bat of England’s Sydney Barnes vs Australia in 1908.
