Stuart Broad, the great pacer for England, accomplished a spectacular accomplishment against South Africa in the first Test of the series. On Test Day 2, Broad became only the fourth bowler in Test cricket history to claim 100 or more wickets at a single location. At Lord’s, Broad hit the three-figure milestone and followed James Anderson as the second bowler to accomplish the accomplishment.

In the 63rd over of the innings, Broad accomplished the feat by taking the wicket of South Africa’s wicketkeeper-batsman Kyle Verrynne. When the record was reached, Anderson, who is a player in the match, was the first to congratulate his teammate.

Muttiah Muralitharan, a renowned former spinner for Sri Lanka, accomplished this milestone in three separate cities: Colombo (156), Kandy (117), and Galle (111). Rangana Hearth, another legendary cricketer from Sri Lanka, also took 102 wickets at Galle. In contrast, Anderson has 117 wickets in 27 games at Lord’s.

In 2007, against Sri Lanka, Broad made his England Test debut. Since then, he has collected 553 wickets in the game’s longest format. The English bowler is just 10 wickets behind Australia’s legendary Glenn McGrath and is now the sixth-highest wicket-taker in Test history.

The Proteas were bowled out for 326 in their first innings on Friday, giving them a commanding 161-run lead over England at Lord’s. The pacer finally finished the first innings with three wickets. While Anrich Nortje and Marco Jansen contributed 29 runs for the ninth wicket and kept England in the field for the first hour of play, Jansen only added seven runs to his overnight total of 41 before being caught in the slips by Stuart Broad with a thick edge.
