The fourth and final match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is being played between India and Australia. In this Ahmedabad Test match, the way the Australian players batted powerfully, the Indian bowlers also shone. Among them, R Ashwin, an experienced spinner, made a special record. Ashwin has become the second player not only in India but also in the world to achieve such a performance.
