After Kapil Dev and Zaheer Khan, now Ishant Sharma on Thursday became the third Indian pacer to take 250 wickets in the Test cricket.

During the ongoing five-match series against England, the fast bowler achieved this significant milestone. 

The 29-year-old bowler tricked the right-hand batsman with his fast bowling and gave India their second wicket of the opening day of the match.

Along with that, he became the seventh India bowler to scalp 50 English wickets in Test cricket.

Sharma has played a total of 86 Test for India taking 250 wickets with an economy rate of 3.25.

Meanwhile, India has started their first day of the fourth Test in a dominating style as they had sent four England batsmen back to the pavilion at a meagre score of 57, till lunch.

While Pacer Jasprit Bumrah scalped two English wickets, Hardik Pandya and Ishant Sharma contributed with one wicket each.

After winning the toss, England had asked the Indian side to bowl first in the match.

India, who are trailing the series 1-2, are looking to level the score with a victory in the match to keep their series-winning hopes alive.
