How Stuart Broad compares with the rest of the '500 club'

Stuart Broad became the seventh bowler to take 500 Test wickets when he reached the landmark by dismissing the West Indies' Kraigg Brathwaite at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Brathwaite was also the batsman dismissed when James Anderson, Broad's longstanding England new-ball colleague, took his 500th Test wicket.

Broad ended the third Test when he had Jermaine Blackwood caught behind as England completed a 269-run win that saw them to a 2-1 series victory.

This is how the 34-year-old England paceman's record compares with the other members of Test cricket's '500 club':
