Top Wicket Takers in Test Cricket From India

The Indian cricket team featured in a Test match for the first time on June 25, 1932 at the Lord’s to become the sixth team to earn the status. But the gradual growth of the Indian cricket team saw them clinch their first victory in Test cricket only in 1952. But the major growth in the Indian cricket team started to emerge from the 1970s and they went on to become the runners-up of the first-ever World Test Championship. The rich history of the Indian cricket team also saw them produce some fine bowlers who made a big difference in world cricket.
