Stuart Broad up to third place in International Cricket Council Test bowling rankings

Stuart Broad celebrates his 500th Test wicket

Stuart Broad has moved up to third place in the International Cricket Council Test bowling rankings.

The 34-year-old seamer became just the seventh man to reach 500 Test wickets as England sealed a 2-1 series win over the West Indies.

Broad's match haul of 10 for 67 in the third Test pushed him to his highest-ranking position since August 2016.

Broad has insisted he is bowling as well as ever, and will push on for yet more Test success.

Having been overlooked for selection for the first Test of the series, Broad hit back in style.

And now he will be looking to overtake West Indies great Courtney Walsh's career Test haul of 519 wickets, with only Australia's Glenn McGrath with 563 and England team-mate James Anderson on 589 ahead of him in terms of pace bowlers.
