Pacer Mohammed Shami on Tuesday became the fastest Indian to scalp 150 wickets in ODIs.
Shami achieved this feat during the first ODI of the three-match series against England at the Kennington Oval in London on Tuesday.
The pacer took three wickets, that of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Craig Overton, taking a total of 80 matches to reach the 150-wicket mark.
With this he surpassed the record set by former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar, who took 97 matches to get to 150-wickets.
Shami also became the joint-third fastest ever to take 150 ODI wickets along with Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan. Australia’s Mitchell Starc (77 matches) and Pakistan’s Saqlain Mushtaq (78 matches) hold the top-two positions for fastest bowlers to reach 150 ODI wickets.
