10 fastest bowlers to reach 300 Test wickets
After Ravichandran Ashwin recently became the fastest bowler to reach 300 Test wickets, lets take a look at the Top 10 in the list.
10. Fred Trueman (ENG) - 65 Tests
Frederick Sewards Trueman, OBE or Fred Trueman, was the first bowler ever to reach the landmark of 300 Test Wickets. In his 65th Test match, "Fiery Fred" dismissed Neil Hawke of Australia to notch up a triple century of wickets.
When asked if anyone could better his feat, Trueman once famously said, "Aye, but whoever does will be bloody tired." He held the world record of highest number of wickets in Test matches until 1975-76, when he was eventually overtaken by West Indies spinner, Lance Gibbs.
