No.1 Test bowler of the world Ravindra Jadeja has become the second fastest Indian bowler to pick up 150 Test wickets, after Ravichandran Ashwin. In the process, Jadeja, who picked up 2 wickets against Sri Lanka today, crossed the milestone faster than the likes of Anil Kumble and Erapalli Prasanna.

The pair of Ashwin and Jadeja caught the Lankan tigers off guard and enforced the follow-on on an action-filled opening session on Day 3 in Colombo. The left-arm spinner tested the two overnight batters' patience with sharp turn and bounce and accounted for two wickets - Dinesh Chandimal and Dhananjaya de Silva. His second wicket brought him his 150th Test wicket and he managed to take it in just his 32nd Test.

With the achievement, Jajdeja managed to edge past the likes of Erapalli Prasanna, Anil Kumble, Harbhajan Singh, BS Chandrasekhar, and Kapil Dev. He also became the fastest left-arm spinner in the world to achieve the milestone by crossing the likes of Rangana Herath, Vinoo Mankad and Bishen Singh Bedi to sit at the summit.

Currently, Jadeja is the No.1 Test bowler and has been a consistent run-scorer for India in the lower middle order as well.

Ravi Rampaul or Shane Shillingford? Who will take more wickets?
