Mohammed Siraj snapped up his 50th Test wicket with the dismissal of Nathan Lyon during the second day of the World Test Championship (WTC) final at the Oval in London.
Lyon tried to swing hard and hit the ball down the ground, but the ball beat his bat to crash into the stumps and reduce Australia to 469 for nine on the second day of the match.
Siraj, who made his Test debut in the Melbourne Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy of 2020/21, reached the milestone in his 19th Test.
Siraj also took the wicket of a well-set David Warner during day one and managed to strangle Travis Head down the leg side in the first session of the second day.
England has been his favourite opponent so far. He has taken 21 wickets against it. He has also taken 16 wickets against Australia. His only Test five-for has also come against the Aussies.
Forty-one of his Test wickets have come away from home, with 21 of them coming in England.
Jasprit Bumrah is currently the fastest pacer to 50 Test wickets for India, needing only 11 matches to reach the figure.
