England’s Stuart Broad took his 500th Test wicket when he dismissed the West Indies’ Kraigg Brathwaite lbw at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old paceman became just the seventh bowler to reach the landmark.

The only bowlers with more than 600 Test wickets are the trio of former spinners — Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Australian Shane Warne (708) and India’s Anil Kumble (619).

The only seamers ahead of Broad are his long-time England new-ball colleague James Anderson (589 wickets) along with Australia’s Glenn McGrath (563) and the West Indies’ Courtney Walsh (519), both of whom are retired.
