After being adjudged the Man of the Series in the four-match Test series against West Indies, Indian off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin now holds the Indian record for most Man of the Series awards in Tests.
Ashwin surpassed former batting stalwarts Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar, who won the Man of the Series awards five times. What makes his achievement all the more impressive is the fact that the spinner picked up the awards in just 13 series, while it took Sehwag 39 series and Sachin 74 series to get to win their five awards.
