Stuart Broad started his International Test career against Sri Lanka on 9 Dec 2007. He became fifer 18 times in his Test Career and the best bowling figures of Stuart Broad was 8–15 in the Australian first innings as they were dismissed for just 60. The performance was named as Wisden’s Men’s Test spell of the decade.

Broad joined the elite club of 500 wickets.

Broad took 140 matches for the milestone of 500 wickets. 

Stuart Broad became the seventh bowler to take 500 wickets in Test cricket and the fourth fast bowler. Moreover it was mere a coincidence that Kraigg Brathwaite was the same batsman who became 500th wicket of James Anderson too. A big thanks to Brathwaite from both the bowlers who helped them to join the elite club of 500 Test wickets. Broad is the only bowler of the world who has taken two Test Hat-Tricks on his name.

In the initial stage of his international career he became very popular when Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh hit six sixes from Broad’s one over in a match during ICC World Cup Twenty20 on 19 September 2007. Broad is the second bowler for England after James Anderson to reach the milestone of 500 Test Wickets.

But only the next month he came back to his form and brought a big name for the team when  England won first ODI series in Sri Lanka defeating them in the series by 3-2 . Broad took eleven wickets in the series at an average of 19.27.
