the fans and the media at this sensitive time,” he added.

Ravichandran Ashwin reached the milestone of 500 test wickets

Ashwin had a good journey in cricket before the bad news came to light. The 37-year-old first put on 77 runs for eight wickets in India’s first innings with debutant wicketkeeper Dhruv Jurel before getting out for 37 off 89. He went on to reach the 500-wicket mark after he eliminated Zak Crawley, becoming the second fastest to reach the mark in the best form of the game. Ashwin also became the only Indian after Anil Kumble, who finished with 619 Test wickets, to join the prestigious 500-wicket club.

Later that day, Ashwin dedicated his achievement to his father, highlighting the role he played in his life. And he was looking forward to the task at hand, with England chasing India’s first innings of 445 by 238 runs with 8 wickets in hand before news broke that he would retire.
