Jasprit Burmah etched his name in the Indian record books by becoming the fastest bowler to reach 100 Test wickets.

After dismissing England's Ollie Pope on the penultimate day of the fourth India-England Test at The Oval, the 27-year-old fast bowler reached the milestone in his 24th Test.

In the second session of the final day, England was reduced to 146 for five after Jasprit Bumrah castled Jonny Bairstow with a magnificent yorker, picking up his 101st wicket in the process.

Kapil Dev is the fastest Indian bowler to record 100 Test wickets, which he achieved in his 25th Test.

When Kapil attained the milestone against a visiting Pakistani team at Eden Gardens, he was only 21 years old. He scored 1,000 runs and took 100 wickets in the same Test.

In his 24th Test, Jasprit Bumrah became the eighth bowler to achieve the century mark with 100 wickets.

Jasprit Bumrah is the joint-eighth fastest Indian bowler to reach the 100-wicket mark. Ravichandran Ashwin became the fastest Indian to attain the milestone during the 2013 home series against the West Indies.

He reached 100 wickets in only 18 Tests, becoming the quickest bowler since Clarrie Grimmett did so in his 17th Test against the West Indies in 1931.

Erapalli Prasanna, the former Indian record holder, reached the milestone in two fewer Tests than Ashwin.

Jasprit Bumrah made his Test debut during India's 2017-18 South Africa tour. He was fast-tracked to Test cricket following phenomenal success with the white ball.

With 14 wickets in his first series, he made an immediate impression. Later that year, he was instrumental in India's first-ever Test series victory in Australia.

Jasprit Bumrah is the 10th-ranked bowler in Test cricket and one of the three A+ grade contract holders in Indian cricket, alongside Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

India's dreams of winning their first series in England since 2007 are still riding on the shoulders of their star pacer Jasprit Bumrah.
