Indian Ravichandran Ashwin spinner returned the number 6 of 6 for Surrey in a County Championship match against Somerset in Oval on Tuesday. At the hands of Ashwin’s Haul, Somerset 69 went out to sea at the second inning after 429 races in its first inning. Ashwin caught Somerset goalkeeper Steve Davies behind him to get between the entrance holes. Off spinner followed Rikki Clarke with Tom Lammonby going to Somerset to go 13-13.

Ashwin passed Somerset’s central command when Captain James Hildreth threw the lbw, threw the ball with George Bartlett and also caught Roelof van der Merwe lbw.
When Ashwin threw the Ben Green bowl, Somerset were 67 for 9.
Despite the collapse, a large amount of the first entry was set by Somerset for Surrey, who scored 240 in their first inning, 259 runs to Chase on the final day of the match.
Ashwin’s return greeted him ahead of a series of five tests for India, against England, starting on August 4 at Trent Bridge.
The Indian Test team has been in England for more than a month before arriving at the English Shores in June ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final in Southampton in New Zealand.
The Test against England will kick off a new cycle of the World Test Championship.
After the Trent Bridge Test, matches will be played at Lord’s, Headingley, The Oval and Old Trafford.
