Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin achieved a rare feat becoming only the third Indian cricketer to score a century and take five wickets in an innings in a Test match.
The other two were Vinoo Mankad and Polly Umrigar who achieved the commendable feat against England and West Indies rspctively. Ashwin had taken five for 156 his second five-for in Tests before scoring his maiden century against West Indies on the fourth day of the third and final cricket Test on Friday.
Ashwin achieved the milestone by cutting pacer Ravi Rampaul for a boundary.
In fact it's after 49 years that an Indian cricketer has achieved the feat in a Test match.
Umrigar scored 172 and took five for 107 against West Indies at Port of Spain back in April, 1962 while Mankad scored a magnificent 184 and also scalped five for 196 against England at the Lord's way back in 1952. Mankad also scored 72 in the first innings.
