Ravichandran Ashwin created his own piece of history on Day 1 of the first Test vs Australia. 

He did so after taking the wicket of Alex Carey, which was also his 450th Test wicket for India.

Ashwin is just the second Indian bowler to do so after Anil Kumble.

He is also the fastest to achieve this feat, having done so in just 89 Tests. 

But, there is another exclusive list that Ashwin made it to after this achievement. 

He is only one of three players to score a Test century and also take 450+ Test wickets!

Ashwin has scored five Test centuries, in addition to his 452 Test wickets. 

Two other players — Anil Kumble and Stuart Broad — have scored a single Test century each. 

Even the likes of James Anderson, Glenn McGrath, Muttiah Muralidharan, Courtney Walsh and Shane Warne have not done this!
