The Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 between India and Australia will begin from today (February 9) at the Vidarbha Stadium in Nagpur.

And if Team India wins this series, India can get a place in the World Test Championship 2023 finals. With this, all the attention of cricket fans is now on the first test match. Moreover, if our players perform well in the four matches of this series, many records are sure to be broken. But there is a chance for Indian veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin to achieve a rare milestone in the Nagpur Test. For that he has to take only one wicket. Ashwin, who has played 88 Tests so far, has taken 449 wickets. Off-spinner R Ashwin is just one step away from joining that rarefied club.
