    Philander, Ashwin and George Lohmann

    Can anyone of Philander and Ashwin break Lohmann's record of fastest to 100 wickets in test cricket?

    Lohmann created this record in 1896 by claiming 100 wickets in 16 tests. Since then this record hasn't been broken.

    Philander has 63 wickets in 10 matches and Ashwin has 49 in his 8 matches.

    Philander will go close, doubt Ashwin will though.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    depends on whether ashwin refuses to ever play outside of india again
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Ashwin's next 8 test matches will be in india so he has a chance of coming near to that record

    If Ashwin comes within a bull's roar of that record it would be an utter ****ing indictment and make a mockery of the game.

    I mean, fmd they were playing him with sticks of celery out here. If he gets a record that old and venerable then they should stop keeping records.

    To be fair he's actually a good off-spinner - nothing phenomenal, but give him some more time to adapt to foreign conditions and I am sure he'd be more than just serviceable over here. You saw how flat the decks were, terrible for spin even by Australian standards
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Depends on how do you rate England and Australia.

    Absolute drivel.

    Statistical records like that say nothing about the quality of the players involved. Fair play to him if he actually does break it, you're just going to have to suck it up and deal with it.

    He won't, though.

    I will laugh my lungs out here if Ashwin equals that record. Despite playing 3 of his 8 tests in Australia, he has raced to 49 wickets. Can't hate him for that. And the era that Lohman played in, played a part in him achieving that record obviously.
