R Ashwin is one of the most prolific all-rounders in the Indian cricket team. Always in form, the cricketer has been taking wickets and setting records. And on Monday, Ashwin broke a record of one of the world’s most famous bowlers – Dennis Lillee. Ashwin became the fastest bowler to take 300 Test wickets.

Monday was the fourth day of the ongoing Test match between India and Sri Lanka and was Ashwin’s 54th Test match. By comparison, Lillee took his 300th in his 56th Test.

Ashwin’s spell helped India win the by an innings and 239 runs, and lead the Test series 1-0.

Praise even came from spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan who congratulated Indian off-spinner with these words:

“I want to congratulate him (Ashwin). It’s a big achievement as getting 300 Test wickets is not an easy job. Definitely, he is the best spinner in the world at the moment.”

If Murali calls you the best spinner in the world, it surely means something. So obviously there were reasons for Ashwin to celebrate it.

The 31-year-old Tamil Nadu off spinner soaked in the victory with a tweet in which he is seen posing for a selfie with team captain Virat Kohli.

Congratulatory tweets poured in throughout the day:

But there was one person who did not think that Ashwin’s stellar performance was the ‘big news’, and that person was Ashwin’s wife Prithi.

She took to Twitter to hilariously troll her super-awesome husband in a very smart way.

Her tweet contained the news of Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Merkle, which was of course the most trending news around the world on Monday.

Prithi’s smart tweet was appreciated:

They say that a wife knows the world better than the husband. Prithi proves that.
