Shami breaks Agarkar’s record during first ODI…

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.

India beat England by 10 wickets in the first ODI on Tuesday.
