Team India lost their Test series against Protease and then the ODI series, but former Australian player Shane Warne made a great prediction about an Indian bowler.
He is none other than spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and Australian spinner Nathan Lyon can take 1000 wickets in Test cricket.
Shane Warne has said that an Indian bowler can make a world record by taking 1000 wickets in Test cricket.
Shane Warne makes a prediction about Ravichandran Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin and Nathan Lyon have a long way to go to reach 1000 Test wickets. Ravichandran Ashwin currently has 430 wickets while Nathan Lyon has taken 415 wickets so far.
These players, including Shane Warne, are at the top of the list.
Sri Lankan great spinner Muttiah Muralitharan was named the world record holder for taking the most 800 wickets in Test cricket.
Shane Warne himself is present at number two, having taken 709 Test wickets.
After this comes the third number one fast pitcher. England’s legendary fast bowler James Anderson with 640 test wickets.
At number four, Indian player Anil Kumble has 619 wickets to his name.
Shane Warne’s favorite players have to work very hard to achieve this record.
Ravichandran Ashwin bowled again at the Mumbai Test and India’s victory is almost certain.
He passed Anil Kumble, who was spinning his legs, and Harbhajan Singh, who was not spinning his legs.
In the years 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2023, Ashwin has done it four times. He has taken over 50 wickets.
In fact, Ashwin has become the bowler to take 50 or more Test wickets for India in different calendar years.
Shane Warne while speaking to Hindustan Times said:
‘I hope that Ravichandran Ashwin and Nathan Lyon will break my and Muralitharan’s record, because the more we see quality spin bowling, the more interesting cricket will be. I think of when you see a fast pitcher pitching stormy and the hitter tries to get him down.
‘Then you see the battle between a great pitcher and a hitter, so these are very interesting moments. So if we can see these moments, I hope that Ashwin and Nathan can take 1000 trial plots.
