New Delhi: As England and South Africa get ready to lock horns in the first Test later today, Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is expecting both countries to put on an 'exciting' cricket spectacle.

"An exciting series between #ENGvSA is set to unfold later in the day," Ashwin tweeted.

 

England and South Africa are slated to play four Test matches against each other and the series is a part of the World Test Championship (WTC).

The first Test will be played at Centurion.

Three Lions' pacer James Anderson is all set to play his 150th Test for the country and if he does so, he will become only the second Englishman to achieve the feat.

Overall, he will become the ninth cricketer to play 150 Tests or more.

On the other hand, Ashwin has finished this decade with the most number of international wickets. Ashwin has 564 wickets this decade, while the second-best Anderson has 535.

England's Stuart Broad is at the third spot with 525 dismissals.

Ashwin has taken 364 wickets in the longest format of the game at an average of 25.36. He has played 111 ODIs and has taken 150 wickets.
