Ravichandran Ashwin stole the limelight on the third day of the second Test between India and England at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Monday. With his fifth Test hundred, the spinner helped the hosts put up a challenging total of 482.
Ashwin forged a 96-run seventh-wicket partnership with captain Virat Kohli (62) when India were reduced to 106/6 at one point. He then rallied on towards the end and scored a valiant 106, helping India to 286-all out.
Great things never come from comfort zone and this is great knock from @ashwinravi99 Also showed it’s going to be hard batting on this pitch but hard does not mean impossible. Nothing but RESPECT Ash🙏 #INDvsENG pic.twitter.com/1S2Wdiv83Y

Wonderful from Ashwin. I was beginning to fear that the batsman in him was getting lost. On a difficult track, this century is a gem.
