Broad achieved the feat in his 166th Test with the wicket of Travis Head in the 50th over of the first innings.
Of his 600 scalps, 394 have come in England, while 206 have come from abroad. The 37-year-old is the fifth bowler after Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, Anil Kumble, and Anderson to record 600 Test wickets.
