Veteran Indian player Ravichandran Ashwin achieved a big milestone by taking 500 wickets in Test cricket for India. Nevertheless, the 37-year-old had scant opportunity to rejoice, as he was compelled to hastily return to Chennai during Day 3 of the Rajkot Test against England owing to a family emergency.

Once he sorted things out at home, he came back for the next day of the match and even took a wicket after bowling six overs, giving away only 19 runs. His wife, Prithi, shared a touching message on Instagram to celebrate his achievement despite the challenges he faced.

“We chased the 500 at Hyderabad; it didn’t happen. At Vizag, it didn’t happen. So I just bought a ton of sweets and gave it to everyone at home at 499. 500 came and went quietly. Till it didn’t. A lot happened between 500 and 501. Longest 48 hours of our lives,”  Prithi Narayanan posted on her Instagram.

“But this is about 500. And the 499 before that. What a phenomenal achievement. What a phenomenal guy. I am insanely proud of you Ravi Ashwin. We love you!”- She added.

Ravichandran Ashwin marked his name on the elite list of bowlers with 500 test wickets, joining the likes of the great Sharne Warne, Anil Kumble, and six more legends. He got Zak Crawley out to complete his 500th test wicket at Rajkot; he also contributed with his handy knock of 37 runs in the first inning, helping India get a huge total of 445. In the second inning, he also picked up one more wicket after returning to the match because he had to leave the match due to some family reasons. With this feat, Ashwin also becomes only the second Indian after Anil Kumble to hit the 500-wicket milestone.
