One of the most vocal fan among the wives of Cricketer’s is Ravichandran Ashwin’s wife Prithi Narayanan.
She had been constantly cheering Team India with several excited tweets during India’s epic Test series win in Australia last month.
On Monday, when her husband knocked his 5th Test Century in Chennai, she was one of the first to react to his tremendous knock.
She tweeted again, later, saying she was “too overwhelmed” after his stunning knock.
“Too overwhelmed to say much. Let’s wrap up this game now,” she wrote.
Ashwin is India’s both bat and ball star and remained quite active during the ongoing 2nd Test against England at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Ashwin first picked up five wickets of visitors as they were bundled out for 134 in response to India’s 329.
Then, Ashwin came in to bat and stitched a 96-run partnership with captain Virat who got dismissed at 62.
Ashwin washed away the visitors to his fifth Test century, before being bowled by pacer Ollie Stone.
It was the third instance of the off-spinner scoring a century and taking a five-wicket haul in the same match.
However many controversies raised over the terrifying pitch were put on halt by Ashwin who showed that with the right technique and temperament, batsmen could shine, as he hit 13 boundaries and a six against England’s bowling attack.
Ashwin’s heroics saw India set England a target of 482 to win as the hosts look to level the four-match series.
