In November, 2011, Ravichandran Ashwin made his Test debut along with Umesh Yadav against West Indies with impressive figures of 27-4-81-3 in the 1st innings and 21.3-5-47-6 in the 2nd innings. His magical spell of 9 wickets is the second best by an Indian test cricketer on debut after Narendra Hirwani. He was also awarded the Man of the Match (MoM) on debut for his bowling exploits, only the third Indian cricketer after Pravin Amre and R.P. Singh to do so
