England fast bowler James Anderson joined the elite 600-club on Tuesday after picking up his 600th wicket in Test cricket. Anderson became the first fast bowler to achieve the feat.

India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah congratulated Anderson on his achievement. “Congratulations for your remarkable achievement @jimmy9! Your passion, fortitude and drive are exceptional, cheers and best wishes for the future. #600TestWickets,” Bumrah wrote.

Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh challenged Bumrah to scalp atleast 400 wickets in Test cricket in his career.

Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan holds the record for the highest wickets in Test cricket. The Sri Lankan has 800 wickets to his name.

Australia’s Shane Warne follows Muralitharan with 708 scalps and India’s Anil Kumble is at three 619 wickets.
