Ravi Ashwin achieved this special landmark in the home serie sagainst Australia in 2013 , and this was the first and only time that a bowler achieved this amazing feat. During the series, Australia had used 16 players in 4 test matches and Ashwin had dismissed all of them once or more.
R Ashwin came into the public’s reckoning through the IPL, but soon enough, he began to hold his own even in international cricket. A tall offspinner, Ashwin opened the bowling for Chennai Super Kings, bowled at death, came on when wickets were required, and was the Man of the Series in the 2010 Champions League Twenty20 played in South Africa.
Ashwin took nine wickets in his maiden Test against West Indies, the second-highest by an Indian debutant after Narendra Hirwani’s 16, and won the Man-of-the-Match award. It only got better from there: he registered nine five-fors in his first 16 Tests and in 2013, broke Erapalli Prasanna’s Indian record for the fastest to 100 Test wickets by reaching the landmark in his 18th game.
