Bhuvneshwar Kumar claimed his first wicket in Test cricket when his delivery disturbed David Warner’s furniture today. Interestingly Bhuvneshwar’s first wicket in Twenty20 [ Images ] Internationals and One-Day Internationals were also bowled (Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Hafeez [ Images ] respectively).
Bhuvneshwar thus became first bowler in cricket history to get his first wicket in all three formats of the game as bowled. There have been a few players who have taken first wicket as bowled in two formats, but none had done this in all three before Bhuvneshwar.
There are a few bowlers, however, who took their first wicket in all 3 formats without any assistance from a teammate. The complete list is given below. Some of the players made their debut in shorter version of the game before making their Test debut, however the list is compiled in a particular order for the sake of the clarity.
