July 6 (CRICKETNMORE) Ace seamer Jasprit Bumrah added another feather to his cap on Saturday by becoming the second fastest Indian after Mohammed Shami to take 100 ODI wickets during India's final World Cup group stage match against Sri Lanka at the Headingley Cricket Ground.

The 25-year-old achieved the feat in his 57th ODI, one more than Shami, when he forced an edge off Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne in the fourth over of the match which was neatly taken by wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
