Soon after R Ashwin became the second fastest bowler to reach 200 Test wickets, the former explosive batsman invented a new name for the in-form off-spinner.
Here is what Sehwag said:
Well done on the first set of 200 wickets.
Surely many more sets to go@ashwinravi99 .

On Day 4 of the first Test match between India and New Zealand, Ashwin trapped Kane Williamson in front of the wicket, in the 18th over of the innings to complete 200 Test wickets.
Australia leg-spinner Clarrie Grimmett leads the chart, reaching the milestone in 36 Tests. Ashwin achieved the milestone in 37 Tests.
Continuing his good form in Tests, Ashwin removed Martin Guptill and Tom Latham in the fourth over of New Zealand's second innings on Day 4. (WATCH: Ravichandran Ashwin's magic ball that bamboozled Kane Williamson on Day 3)
While Guptill edged one to silly point, Latham, who scored 58 runs in first innings, was trapped in front of the wicket.
At stumps on Day 4, Wililamson's men were in dire straits having lost four wickets for just 93 runs.
