Ravichandran Ashwin, the Indian off-spinner, has become the new No.1 ICC bowler in Test cricket after India won the Border Gavaskar Trophy by a scoreline of 2-1. Ashwin’s impressive performances with the ball in the series helped India win their second consecutive Test series in Australia, a feat that had never been achieved before.

With this performance, Ashwin overtook Australia’s Pat Cummins to become the new No.1 ICC bowler in Test cricket. He is also only the fourth Indian bowler to achieve the No.1 ranking in Test cricket after Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev, and Anil Kumble.
