India have started strong in the 1st Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy vs Australia. 

Their star bowler on Day 1 was Ravindra Jadeja, who took five wickets. 

But Ravichandran Ashwin was the one who grabbed headlines after becoming the fastest Indian to 450 wickets in Tests!

He is also the second player to do so, after former skipper Anil Kumble. 

In doing so, Ashwin also became the only Asian to take 450 wickets and score 3000 runs for India.

Only two other players have achieved this feat in Test cricket. 

Stuart Broad of England has 566 wickets and 3550 runs in Tests.

The late Shane Warne is the third player to do this, with 708 wickets and 3154 runs in Tests for Australia.

Ashwin ended the day with 3 wickets, as the visitors were bowled out for 177 runs.
