Waqar Younis congratulates Ravichandran Ashwin for his record breaking feat

It is turning out to be a record-breaking year for Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin as the 30-year-old on Sunday surpassed legendary bowlers Waqar Younis and Dennis Lillee to become the second fastest bowler to pick 200 Test wickets.

Ashwin achieved this milestone in his 37th Test match, whereas Waqar and Lillee, both took 38 Tests.


As the Indian offie became the fastest Asian bowler to complete 200 Test scalps, he was congratulated by the former ‘King of Swing’ Waqar Younis.

The Pakistani legend took his Twitter handle and tweeted a congratulatory message for Ashwin. His tweet reads: “I congratulate @ashwinravi99 on taking 200 Test wickets in such a short time, got the potential of breaking many records. #OutStandingEffort”

The World No. 1 Test all-rounder was quick to react to Waqar’s tweet and thanked him for his tweet.
