Ishant Sharma became the sixth Indian and third pacer from the country to take 300 wickets in Test cricket.
Anil Kumble (619) and Kapil (434), Ravichandran Ashwin (377 before this game), Harbhajan Singh (417), and Zaheer Khan (311) are the other bowlers from the country who have reached the landmark.
“Congratulations @ImIshant. He becomes the third Indian fast bowler to take 300 Test wickets. He traps Lawrence in the front as England lose their third wicket,” the BCCI tweeted soon after he accomplished the feat.
Ishant reached the landmark when he took a wicket of Dan Lawrence. He reached the milestone in 98 matches.
