Mohammed Shami has just carried on the good form in New Zealand and become the fastest Indian bowler to complete 100 wickets in one-day internationals.

Shami on Wednesday removed New Zealand opener Martin Guptill in the very first over he bowled in the match to achieve the feat.

The Bengal pacer beat the Indian record which was previously held by left-arm swing bowler Irfan Pathan. Shami got to the landmark in his 56th ODI while Pathan had done it in 59 matches.

Zaheer Khan (65 ODIs), Ajit Agarkar (67) and Javagal Srinath (68 ODIs) complete the top five fastest bowlers from India to complete 100 wickets.

Overall, Shami is tied with Kiwi speedster Trent Boult as the sixth fastest to the landmark in terms of matches played. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan leads the list, having set the record in 44 ODIs followed by Mitchell Starc (52 ODIs), Saqlain Mushtaq (53 ODIs), Shane Bond (54 ODIs) and Brett Lee (55 ODIs).

Shami has been in terrific form for India ever since he made a comeback in the one-day side in Australia earlier this month. He got just 5 wickets in the series in the three ODIs but was impressive with the line and lengths he bowled throughout the series.
