Stuart Broad joins elite company in Test cricket

The Ashes series is off to a great start this year as the first Test at Edgbaston has produced some historic performances from both the sides. The game hung in balance till the final session of the final day as both teams tried to score their first points in Test Championship.

English pacer Stuart Broad had a special game against the arch rivals as he completed his 100 Ashes wickets during his fifer in the first innings, becoming only the 16th bowler to do so. Moreover, Broad has also joined an elite list of players after completing 450 Test wickets which has now made him the 7th most successful bowler in the history of Test cricket.

The top six bowlers in the list include names like Muttiah Muralitharan (800 wickets), Shane Warne (708 wickets), Anil Kumble (619 wickets), James Anderson (575 wickets), Glenn McGrath (563 wickets), and Courtney Walsh (519 wickets).
