Kuldeep Yadav reaches mega milestone after stunning fifer in IND vs ENG 5th Test

IND vs ENG Dharamshala Test: Kuldeep Yadav reaches 50 Test wicket milestone after rattling England in 5th Test

Kuldeep Yadav has wreaked havoc on Day 1 of the IND vs ENG Dharamshala Test. Kuldeep bagged a fifer and in doing so reached a career milestone of reaching 50 Test wickets. In fact, Kuldeep added another feather to his cap by being one of the quickest Indian bowlers to reach 50 Test wickets.

While fans hoped the pacers to shine brightly in Dharamshala, it was quite the opposite. In fact all the 10 wickets of England went to India’s three spinners. Kuldeep bagged a fifer, Ashwin scalped a four-fer on his 100th Test match while Ravindra Jadeja took the solitary wicket of Joe Root.

Quickest Test to reach 50 Wickets for India

9 – R Ashwin
10 – Kumble
11 – Gupte
11 – N Hirwani
11 – Harbhajan
11 – Bumrah
12 – B Chandrasekar
12 – E Prasanna
12 – Axar
12 – Kuldeep*

It has taken just 12 Test matches for Kuldeep Yadav to scalp 50 Test wickets for his country. However, it India’s veteran all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin who tops the charts after having achieved the milestone in just 9 matches. Kuldeep now has matched Axar Patel, E Prasanna and B Chandrasekar to achieve this milestone in just 12 Test matches.

It is safe to assume it is a big record for Kuldeep Yadav. The leggie hasn’t been a regular spinner for the India Cricket Team in the longest format of the game. Having made his Test debut, Kuldeep has just played 12 Test matches for his country.
