After a phase of facing overseas defeats, Team India has regained number one spot in ICC Test rankings and off spinner R Ashwin jumps to number one among the bowlers list. He is in his prime form and used the home advantage to make good in reaping rich harvest of wickets. The man of the series award and the subsequent success as the number one bowler with 900 points is a phenomenal success for Ashwin. If Ashwin continues to maintain his form he will remain number one bowler at the year end. Four man of the series award is an outstanding show. In West Indies the off spinner could claim only 17 wickets but his two centuries against all odds helped him to leapfrog to the top spot in the Caribbean Island. Kudos to Team India for the good show and Ashwin holds the top position with successive performances with both bat and ball.
