Pune: Record-making off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, on broke Kapil Dev's 37-year-old Indian record of most Test wickets in a domestic season on the second day morning of the first cricket Test against Australia here on Friday.

Ashwin, the fastest in the world to reach 250 Test wicket mark recently, dismissed overnight batsman Mitchell Starc with the fifth ball of the first over of the morning to end the visitors' first innings at 260 and take his tally of wickets in the current home season to 64 in 10 Test matches.
