The other two pacers to have taken 300 Test wickets are Kapil Dev and Zaheer Khan. Overall, Ishant is the sixth Indian bowler to take 300 Test wickets.

The World Cup-winning captain, Dev, was admitted to a hospital in the early hours of Friday after he complained of chest pain.

"Cricketer Kapil Dev came to Fortis Escorts Heart Institute (Okhla Road) emergency department at 1:00 am on 23rd October with a complaint of chest pain. He was evaluated and an emergency coronary angioplasty was performed in the middle of night," Fortis Escorts hospital said in a statement.

“Basically we will not like to shift release date further.... and ideally look for theatrical or any other hybrid measure for the best possible release,” Shibasish Sarkar said.

Kapil Dev lifting the trophy at the balcony of Lord's Cricket Ground still remains an image to savour for all the Indian fans.

India managed to take 47 run lead in the first innings after registering a score of 341, owing to Dilip Vengsarkar's knock of 126 runs from 213 balls.

India had lost the first Test against New Zealand by ten wickets. Jasprit Bumrah had managed to take just one wicket in the match, however, Dev said that the pacer will return to form very soon.

India locked horns with Australia in the quarter-finals, and Yuvraj Singh took the side over the line and India then went on to become the first side to win a World Cup on their home soil.
