Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah became the quickest Indian fast bowler to get to 50 Test wickets when he achieved the landmark on Day 2 of the first Test against West Indies at Antigua. He removed Darren Bravo just moments after play resumed after the tea break to get to the feat. 

Bumrah broke Venkatesh Prasad and Mohammad Shami's record, who had taken 13 matches to get 50 wickets. Bumrah is also the joint third fastest among all bowlers (spinners included) in the list, along with Harbhajan Singh and Narendra Hirwani. 

Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin holds the record for getting 50 wickets in the least number of games (9), while Anil Kumble is second after he got to the landmark in ten games. Bumrah, however, is the fastest to 50 scalps if the number of balls bowled are taken into account. In 2465 balls, Bumrah has 50 wickets, which beats Ashwin's record of picking up 50 in 2597 deliveries. 

Bumrah, who made his Test debut last January squashed all doubts about whether he would be a success in the five-day format by picking up a phenomenal 48 wicketrs in only 9 games in 2018. The pacer, long considered an ODI and T20I specialist till then, also played a huge role in India's maiden series win in Australia late last year, picking up 21 wickets.
