Brisbane, Jan 25 (IANS) Australian pacer Mitchell Starc on Thursday accomplished the remarkable feat of claiming 350 Test wickets, making him the fifth Australian to reach this milestone during the second Test match against West Indies here at The Gabba.

Starc needed just two wickets to reach the 350 mark. In the 20th over, he showcased his prowess by dismissing Tagernarine Chanderpaul, setting the stage for the milestone moment.
