Stuart Broad's completed 'century' at Lord's, joins the list of legendary bowlers

England fast bowler Stuart Broad has made a big record in the first Test match against South Africa. Broad completed a century of wickets at Lord's Ground, called the Mecca of Cricket, as soon as he took the wicket of Africa's wicket-keeper batsman, Kyle Verne, on the second day. He has become the second bowler in the world to take 100 Test wickets on this ground. Before him, this feat was done by his fellow fast bowler James Anderson. With this, Broad has become the fourth bowler in the world to take 100 or more wickets on the ground.

Bowlers who took 100 Test wickets on a ground:-

Muttiah Muralitharan 166 wickets -  Sinhalese Sports Club Ground, Colombo
Muttiah Muralitharan 117 wickets - Asgiriya Stadium, Kandy 
James Anderson 117* wickets- Lord's, London 
Muttiah Muralitharan 111 wickets - Galle International Stadium, Galle 
Rangana Herath 102 wickets - Galle International Stadium, Galle
Stuart Broad 100* wickets - Lord's, London

Apart from Broad and Anderson, former Sri Lankan spinners Muttiah Muralitharan and Rangana Herath have taken 100 wickets on one ground. Muralitharan, who took the most 800 wickets in Test cricket, has done this miracle on not one but three grounds. The Sri Lankan legend has taken 100 or more wickets at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground in Galle, Kandy and Colombo.
