Anil Kumble sets higher target for Ravi Ashwin after entering 500-club

IND vs ENG Rajkot Test: Anil Kumble asks Ravi Ashwin to scalp 630 Test wickets before retiring.

Ravichandran Ashwin achieved a historic feat today. He went on to scalp 500 Test wickets on his 98th Test match for the India Cricket Team. Ashwin dispatched Zac Crawley to get his coveted 500 wicket mark. After stumps on Day 2 of the IND vs ENG 3rd Test, former India skipper Anil Kumble claimed that Ashwin should be scalp more wickets.

Anil Kumble has set a target for Ravi Ashwin. The former India skipper and head coach has claimed that Ashwin should finish at 625 or 630 Test wickets and not before that. The 37 year old is approaching the twilight of his career.

“You should be finishing around 625 or 630, not below that,” said Anil Kumble on JioCinema after stumps on Day 2 to Ravi Ashwin.

Ravi Ashwin became only the second India bowler to scalp 500 Test wickets. Only Anil Kumble has more Test wickets compared to the Indian all-rounder. Anil Kumble on the other hand has 619 Test wickets.

It is only natural that Kumble would want an Indian bowler to surpass him. Should Ashwin go on to scalp 625 or 630 wickets., then he will become the highest Test wicket taker for India.
