The second-fastest bowler to take 450 test wickets is Ravichandran Ashwin.
In the opening Test of the four-match India vs. Australia Test series on Thursday, 9 February, India's R Ashwin recorded his 450th Test wicket. By taking the 450th wicket in his 89th Test match, Ashwin passed Kumble to become the Indian bowler to accomplish this feat the fastest. Kumble continues to lead India in wickets taken with 619, but Ashwin is quickly coming up. Carey was duped by Ashwin, and the intended sweep stroke of the Australian wicketkeeper damaged the stumps.
