India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is playing his first County Championship game for Surrey at The Oval. Ashwin, who replaced the injured fast bowler Kyle Jamieson for this match, gave only 2 runs in the first over of the game bowled to Somerset openers Devon Conway and Steven Davies.

The 34-year-old later picked up the wicket of No.3 batsman Tom Lammonby for 42 in the 40th over to reduce Somerset to 113 for 3.

Lammonby left the ball which was pitched in the good length area, only for his off-stump to get shattered. It was an absolute peach of a delivery as the pitch didn’t have much help for the spinners.

Here’s the video:

Ashwin has previously played for Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire in English County. The match against Somerset will be his only appearance for Surrey, as after this encounter, he will join the rest of the Indian squad for the upcoming practice games ahead of their five-match Test series versus England.

The first Test will bowl out from August 4 in Nottingham.
