MITCH COLLECTS HIS 250TH TEST WICKET
Mitch has become the fifth-fastest Australian bowler to take 250 wickets in the longest format of the game.
Mitch achieved the feat in the Boxing Day Test against India here at the MCG, in what was his 59th Test match, when he dismissed Rishabh Pant.
Dennis Lillee (48 Tests) is the fastest Australian to bag 250 wickets while Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (45) is the fastest bowler to achieve the feat.
Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath have achieved a similar feat in 55 matches while former Australian bowler Mitchell Johnson took 57 games to bag 250 wickets.
Mitch collected 3-78 in the first innings and should have had more wickets, only for some sloppy fielding. He then took 1-20 in the 2nd innings to take his career tally to 252 Test wickets @ 26.75.
India won the Test and the 4 match series is level at 1-1 heading into the Sydney Test starting on 7th January.
