Congratulations Ashwin
by Manohar Rao on Nov 27, 2017 07:12 PM

Great achievements and shame for those critics who with half knowledge are criticizing his achievements.
It has been a norm with most of us Indians who like to criticize our own heroes and downgrade them comparing them with foreign players.
Most of the players perform well at home because of known conditions, spectator support and other comforts which you get only at home.
Those who are criticizing, should come out with a single player whose away performance is exceptional than home performance.
Bradman only played against England and played only either in England or Australia, there also if you compare you will find that his home performance is better than away performance. Also in those days their were no one day internationals or T20s, hence the schedule of test were laid back, plenty of rests between two test and between two series.
Those who are criticizing should be asked to bowl 10 overs on a trot, I am sure, they will get hospitalized or keep their shoulders in ice for at least week. Not only cricket, any sports in general is not a joke, it requires lot of hard work, dedication and determination to reach highest level.
Congratulation Ashwin for your great achievement and I hope India will generate many more sporting heroes in all sports.

quickets 300 wickets of Aswin
by srirama chandra rao on Nov 27, 2017 06:10 PM

HEARTY congrats to him for breaking the record of Lilee

May be he has taken more wickets in subcontinent conditions but equally true is batsmen from these subcontinent are supposed to play spin better compared to Australia, England and other countries. let us not undermine the feat. Lillee has got the wickets in Australia, England which favour fast bowlers. let us be proud of our Indian who has achieved some thing great.

He can take 1000 wickets provided he should get tailor made for him by BCCI

I have one point to say that great bowlers take wickets given any conditions like Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, and few more.

Out of these 300 wickets, 260 (87%) taken in India/SL/Bangladesh grounds.
216 wickets only in India.
Nothing much in overseas conditions.

Lillee took 325 (91.54%)out of his 355 wickets in Australia/England/New Zealand. I am not a big fan of Ashwin, let us be realistic in Criticism.

Murali too has taken 612 out of 800 in the sub continent - 76.5% (has an ordinary record in India)...Shane Warne's bowl ave in India - 47! Does that make the two greats ordinary? No! Bowlers will have their strengths and weaknesses plus it's a team game, when you play in a team there are others who could pick up wickets before you do. That's why Kapil has been praised for his bowling in India where fast bowlers have always struggled and India relied always on spinners. I do agree that Ashwin's record can be better outside the sub continent but then in Australi or SA or Eng, you expect the seamers to do better and lead the bowling and his role is to be a support chipping with 1-2 wkts per innings and giving crucial breakthroughs. Ashwin's has 21 wkts in Aus (6 tests), 17 in WI (4 tests), 3 wkts in Eng (2 tests) and 0 wkts in SA (1 test) - total 41 wkts in 13 tests. He has played less than 25% outside subcontinent. Let's be fair in comparisons.
