Stuart Broad Joins The Exclusive 500-Club for test wickets.

In Numbers, Stuart Broad has joined the exclusive 500 test wickets club, who is the 4th pacer and 7th bowler overall for this kind of record in the golden history of cricket.

He reached this milestone of 500 Test wickets on the 5th day of 3rd and final deciding test match of the Wisden Trophy as Old Trafford stadium.

Earlier he has taken all 6 wickets of West Indies in 7 overs by only giving 22 runs in total.

Stuart Broad also joins the Elite 500-club of pacing bowlers, only following the greats like James Anderson, Glenn McGrath, and Courtney Walsh.

Meanwhile, it is also very interesting to know that Kraigg  Brathwaite is the only batsman who became the 500th test victim of 2 different bowlers. The first great you already know now as Stuart Broad and the other great pacer is James Anderson, who took his wicket on 8th Sep’2017 at Lord’s.

So now Kraigg Brathwaite’s name is also recorded in the golden history books of cricket of being that 500th victim batsman, what a coincident!

Stuart Broad has just achieved an amazing milestone by complete his 500th wicket in the test, let’s look like his other achievements and his track record:

  1. He has debuted on  9th Dec’2007 and took 12 years and 232 days to play in 140 matches and made a record of 500 test wickets.
  2. His track record:
  • Took his 1st wicket of Chaminda Vaas
  • 100th wicket of Thisara Perera
  • 200th wicket of Michael Clarke
  • 300th wicket of Chris Rogers
  • 400th wicket of Tom Latham
  • 500th wicket of Kraigg Brathwaite
