Mumbai: Right arm off spin maestro Graeme Swann becomes 14th Englishman and 60th bowler in Test cricket to claim 200 or more wickets.

He bags the achievement of making double century of test wickets in a test match against India being played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

Swann is the fourth quickest Englishman to take 200 test wickets, behind Ian Botham, Trueman & Bedser.

The off spinner trapped Harbhajan plum as his 200th victim. He now becomes the fifth off-spinner in the world cricket to do so.

Incidentally, Graeme Swann’s first test wicket was also in India when he made his test debut four years back on 11th December 2008 against India.

The magical spinner has now taken 202 test wickets at an average of 29.41.
