5 | Anil Kumble has 15 wickets from four Tests at an average of 16.53

4 | R Ashwin has 16 wickets from four Tests at an average of 23.12 including one fifer

No Bangladesh bowler is in top five wicket-takers on this list. Skipper Shakib Al Hasan is in seventh spot with 15 wickets from seven Tests

It will take a Man of the series worth effort for Ashwin to dethrone Zaheer as he needs 16 more wickets

Ashwin also has a chance to surpass Nathan Lyon (450 wickets) and become India's second bowler to take 450 or more Test wickets
