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 Internationals and One-Day Internationals were also bowled (Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Hafeez 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.
