The Mumbai Indians veteran, who is leading India in the last Test match took on Broad and showed no mercy on him. Stuart Broad could have had a sensation that this had happened before his 2007 T20I World Cup over to Yuvraj Singh as Bumrah smacked him for four boundaries and two sixes in an over.

The English pacer surrendered 35 runs, which made him the only bowler to yield costly overs both in T20I and Test cricket.

The right-arm seamer arrived at the milestone on Day 4 of the continuous fifth Test against England at Edgbaston.

Bumrah is only the 6th Indian to reach the 100-wicket mark in these nations.

Curiously, Bumrah has only 14 Test wickets at home.

Bumrah enters the first-class club

As expressed, Bumrah has become recently the 6th Indian to finish 100 Test wickets in SENA nations. He is just behind Anil Kumble (141), Ishant Sharma (130), Zaheer Khan (119), Mohammed Shami (119), and Kapil Dev (117) on the rundown among Indians.

Bumrah scripts his record

  • Bumrah has taken the most number of wickets by an Indian bowler after the initial 30 Tests.
  • He broke the record of Kapil Dev, who scalped 124 wickets in his first 30 games.
  • Mohammed Shami (110) and Javagal Srinath (101) are the other Indian bowlers to have assumed control north of 100 wickets each in such a manner.

Bumrah made a world record on Day 2

Prior to taking his milestone wicket, Bumrah made a world record with the bat. The 28-year-old slammed 35 runs in the 84th overs bowled by Stuart Broad, the most runs off an over in Tests.

The past record was 28, scored by Brian Lara off R Peterson, Johannesburg 2003, G Bailey off James Anderson, Perth 2013, and Keshav Maharaj off Joe Root, Port Elizabeth 2020.
