Stuart Broad, who became the seventh bowler in history to reach 500 Test wickets in the ongoing Test series between England and Pakistan, was awarded a silver stump by England’s cricket board before the 3rd Test on Friday.

Even as rain held up the start of the first day, the England team held an informal ceremony on the field. ECB chairman Colin Graves handed over a silver stump to Broad.
