1. Adil Rashid

Rashid's best figures in an innings, in this series, has been 4/82. The right-arm bowler averages 28.66 in the series at an economy of 3.50.
2. R Ashwin
This series hasn't been an easy one for this Tamil Nadu bowler for he has managed to get just 15 wickets out of 173.4 overs he has bowled so far.
These figures do no justice to Ashwin's reputation because he has been almost unplayable in the recent past.
The Tamil Nadu off-spinner couldn't be blamed for not so impressive figures in this series. The pitches that hosted all three Test matches had little for the spinners and hardly gave the slow bowlers any purchase.
HeHe gave 473 runs in the series so far and got 5/67 in an innings. Despite being bowling at an economical rate of 2.724 runs per over he averages 31.53.
3. Mohammed Shami
The Indian pacer Mohammed Shami is the best and only pacer in the top 5 so far. Off the three matches he played, Shami got 10 wickets at an average of 25.20. His best figures during an innings were 3/63.
He bowled 103.0 and conceded just 252 runs.
4. Ravindra Jadeja
The left-arm Indian spinner is the fourth highest wicket-taker in the Test series. He too has claimed 10 wickets so far but has a higher average than Shami, hence fourth.
Jadeja has bowled 161 overs and gave 376 runs thus becoming the most economical bowler with 2.14. His best innings performance is 3/86.
5. Jayant Yadav
He is another surprise and find of this Test series. The young Haryana off-spinner has bagged 8 wickets in the two matches he has played, hence at fifth spot.
He has bowled 50.3 overs and conceded just 138 runs with best figures of 3/30 in an innings. Jayant averages 17.25 and is economical too (2.73).
