Harbhajan Singh alias Bhajji (419 wickets), India's third most successful bowler in Test cricket after Anil Kumble (619 wickets) and Kapil Dev (434 wickets), praised Ravichandran Ashwin and said that he would break my record soon. He said this after watching Ashwin bowling in the first Test match played with South Africa. Harbhajan said that with breaking my record, he can touch the figure of taking 600 wickets.
Harbhajan while talking to a media house said that people talk a lot about his (Ashwin) qualification that he bowls well on home ground but we also realize that apart from him many other spinners are also on these pitches. Bowling well. He is the best of all. Harbhajan said that I cannot say for sure about 600 wickets but the figure of 417 wickets is very close.
Gave this suggestion
Harbhajan said, according to the way he is bowling, he will touch 400 as well as 500 wickets. He said that 600 wickets in the Test is far away but he can also touch this figure. For this, he has to be fit and prolong his career. I think he can achieve anything if he stays fit.
Have equaled Muralitharan
Ashwin recently took 350 wickets in 66 matches, equaling Muttiah Muralitharan. Of these, he took 242 Test wickets in 39 matches at home and the remaining 108 wickets in 27 Test matches.
