India fast-bowler Mohammed Shami scripted history by picking up two early wickets in the first ODI of the five-match series against New Zealand in Napier, on Wednesday.

Shami provided India with the best possible start as he got rid of openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro in quick succession. Both the batsmen were castled comprehensively by the Indian pacer.

Guptill became Shami’s 100th wicket in the 50-over format of the game and he is now the fastest Indian to do so (in terms of matches). 

Shami went past all-rounder Irfan Pathan who had reached the milestone in 59 ODIs. Left-arm pacer Zaheer Khan moves to the third spot in this illustrious list.
