The number of times R. Ashwin has done the all-rounder’s double of a Test century and a five-wicket haul in the same Test match. In the second Chennai Test match, he first claimed 5/43 and then made 106, which incidentally was the fifth Test century and his first in his home city. Only England’s Sir Ian Botham has achieve the feat on more occasions – five times – in Test cricket history. Among the Indians, Vinoo Mankad (in 1952) and Polly Umrigar (in 1962) have done this in Test cricket, but just once each!
