Ashwin is only 24 wickets away from creating a world record

#2 – Fastest to 200 Test wickets

Ravichandran Ashwin has been India's best spinner in the longer format for a long time now. With 32 Test matches under his belt, Ashwin was picked up 176 wickets at an average of 25.39. Since making his Test debut in 2011, Ashwin has picked up wickets at a very good rate and stands a good chance of becoming the fastest bowler to reach 200 wickets. The current record is held by Australia's Clarence Grimmett, who reached 200 wickets in 36 Test matches.

Ashwin's most recent Test series was against South Africa at home where he had 31 wickets to his name in just four Tests. Although his form outside India has not been the best, the slow nature of pitches in the Caribbean should be something that Ashwin is able to thrive on and run through the West Indies batting lineup.
