The veteran spinner has again blamed MS Dhoni and some Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) officials for keeping him out of the squad.

R Ashwin is the third most successful Indian bowler in Test cricket. He surpassed Harbhajan Singh’s tally of 417 wickets in the longest format of the game.

Harbhajan took to Twitter to congratulate the off-spinner. “Congratulations @ashwinravi99 wish you many more brother.. God bless.. keep shining,” he wrote.

He dismissed Tom Latham to take his wicket tally to 418 in the longest format of the game. Harbhajan, who is yet to take retirement from international cricket, has 417 wickets.

Ashwin achieved the landmark in the 80th Test match of his career. Meanwhile, Bhajji has represented India in 103 Tests.
