Ravi Ashwin Jonny Bairstow 100th Test: Today is a very special day for Jonny Bairstow, the star player of the Indian team and one of the best batsmen in England. Both the players are playing their 100th Test match in Dharamsala today. There are rare occasions when two players are playing their 100th Test together. You may be surprised to know that this has only happened three times before, while two or more players have done it. This is happening for the fourth time today.

It happened for the first time in the year 2000.

Let’s talk about the year 2000 first, because it was the year when the two greats played their 100th Test match together. It was England’s Mike Arthurton and Alec Stewart. Both have been great players and have set many records. Then in the year 2006, in the match played between South Africa and New Zealand, three players crossed this milestone simultaneously. In this match played at Centurion, South Africa’s Jack Kells and Shaun Pollock, along with New Zealand’s Stephen Fleming, played their 100th Test match together.

The last time this happened was in 2013.

After that, the same story was repeated in 2013. In this year’s match between Australia and England in Perth, Australia’s Michael Clarke and England’s Alastair Cook played their 100th Test together. Both have been captains of their respective teams and have held many such records, which are still unbroken today. The occasion comes almost 11 years later, when India and England play their 100th Test together. India’s Ravichandran Ashwin and England’s Jonny Bairstow. Both the players have set many records for their respective teams.

This match is special for Indian team and England.

This is the last match of the Test series being played in Dharamsala. The Indian team has won three of the four matches played so far while England has won one match. After losing the first match, the Indian team made a brilliant comeback and won three consecutive matches to capture the series. But the final match is still going on. It remains to be seen how the teams as well as the players, who are playing their 100th Test today, perform for their team.
