England’s paceman Stuart Broad has taken 500 wickets in Test cricket. Broad has become the fourth fast bowler and seventh bowler in the world to achieve this feat. On the social media, he has been congratulated by all the coaches including Sachin Tendulkar on this achievement of England’s Pacer. Sachin Tendulkar made a tweet for Broad, which fans are very fond of.
Stuart Broad made his 500th hunt by dismissing Craig Braithwaite on the fifth and last day of the third and final Test match against the West Indies and joined the elite club of bowlers taking 500 Test wickets. Broad reached this feat in his 140th Test. Broad became the second England bowler to achieve this feat. Earlier, James Anderson had this achievement. It is also interesting to note that Anderson’s 500th victim was Craig Braithwaite of the West Indies and Broad also made Braithwaite his 500th victim.
