Manchester, July 28
England quick bowler Stuart Broad took his 500th Test wicket when he trapped West Indies batsman Kraigg Brathwaite leg earlier than wicket on the final day of the third and remaining Test. Broad grew to become the seventh bowler — and second Englishman after teammate James Anderson — to realize the milestone, reaching it in his 140th Test.
Broad ended up with 16 wickets within the sequence, even after being ignored of the crew for the primary Test at Southampton earlier this month.
The 34-year-old debuted for England in 2007 at Colombo with Chaminda Vaas his first, and solely, wicket in that Test at a price of 95 runs. His Test common has improved since to 28.38 with a better of 8/15 when he rampaged via the Australians at Trent Bridge within the Ashes 5 years in the past.
Anderson, who’s closing on 600, stated: “He’s been a real inspiration with the way he was worked over the last years. I’m always amazed how he gets going in a spell and just blows teams away. He’s in great shape and he can go on and get as many wickets as he wants.” — Agencies
