Jasprit Bumrah inching towards 100 wickets in Test
Team India pacer Jasprit Bumrah is inching towards another milestone in Test cricket. He is just 17 wickets away from achieving 100 wickets in the longest format of the game. If he achieves this milestone in this England series then he will be the fastest Indian to reach the landmark. Kapil Dev had reached the milestone in 25 matches. Bumrah has played 20 Test matches so far. Spinner Ravichandra Ashwin needs 12 more wickets to become the first Indian bowler to take 100 wickets against England. (England vs India)
