Indian Cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin become the first bowler to dismiss 200 Left-Handers in Tests Cricket.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Sunday 14 Feb 2021 became the first player in the 143-year history of Test cricket to take 200 wickets against left-handed batsmen. He has picked 391 wickets in his cricketing career so far.

He achieved the feat during the second day of India's second Test against England here at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, his home ground.

Fast bowler Stuart Broad was the 200th left-hander to be dismissed by Ashwin.

On Sunday, Ashwin took a five-wicket haul, his second consecutive fifer, as India dismissed England for 134 after scoring 329.

The second most successful bowler in Test cricket against left-handed batsmen is Sri Lankan great Muttiah Muralitharan. He has dismissed left-handers 191 times out of his world-record 800 Test wickets.

Veteran England fast bowler James Anderson, who has been rested for the ingoing Test, is third with 190 wickets against left-handed batsmen out of 611.
