Stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah has set a new record for the most wickets taken by an India bowler during a Test series in England.

His haul of 3-68 which included all of England's top three in the Covid delayed fifth Test at Edgbaston gave him 21 wickets in a five-match campaign that started last year.

That surpassed Bhuvneshwar Kumar's record of 19 wickets during a five-match series in 2014.

For all that India have been renowned for spin bowlers, the only one in the top five of a list dominated by modern-day quicks is leg-spinner Subhash Gupte, who took 17 wickets during a five-match series back in 1959.
