Ravindra Jadeja becomes fastest left-arm bowler to take 150 Test wickets

Ravindra Jadeja became the fastest left-arm bowler to take 150 wickets in Tests, registering the number on Day 3 of the second Test against Sri Lanka.

The all-rounder went past former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson, who did it in 34 Tests, and did it in style, cleaning up Dhananjaya de Silva for a duck with a quicker delivery.

Along with this, Jadeja also became the second fastest Indian bowler to take 150 wickets, ahead of Erapalli Prasanna and Anil Kumble (34).

Sri Lanka were bowled out for 183 in the first innings, in reply to India’s mammoth score of 622/9, post which skipper Virat Kohli enforced the follow-on.

Here is that moment!
