He made his Test debut in Delhi, where he picked up a match haul of nine for 128, the second best by an Indian on debut.

Ashwin picked up five for 156 in his third Test in Mumbai and also scored a brisk 103 from 118 balls to become the first Indian since 1962 to take five wickets and score a century in the same match.
