Umesh Yadav picked up the wicket of nightwatchman Craig Overton on Day 2 of the Oval Test in England's first innings to reach 150 wickets in the longest format of the game

Kapil Dev is the fastest among Indian pacemen to complete 150 Test wickets, reaching the landmark in 39 matches followed by Javagal Srinath (40), Mohammed Shami (42), Umesh Yadav (48), Zaheer Khan (49) and Ishant Sharma (54).

Yadav was two wickets away from the feat before the start of this match. Yadav was one of the two bowlers who took a wicket against England on Day 2.

Yadav dismissed England's keyman and skipper Joe Root for 21 runs to make his comeback into the Test arena after a gap of several months.

Earlier, England bowled out India for 191 before suffering a top-order collapse of their own on a bowler-dominated opening day of the fourth test at The Oval on Thursday.
