Can anyone guess who is the number 1 test bowler in ICC world rankings? Not that hard to guess. Probably Dale Steyn or someone from Australia or New Zealand? Its getting hard to guess, isn’t it.
Its none other than the English bowler Stuart broad. Just befor the match it was still undecided, weather how will be able to bowl in the 2nd innings as his belly ache was really bad. Not only that, he wasn’t able to bowl to his best in the first innings as well. He only got 2 wickets by giving away 82 runs there. Then he got sick and there was some chance that he will not be able to bowl at all.

However, he did not only bowl but literary crushed South Africa all by himself in the 2nd innings. He took 8 wickets by giving away only 16 runs. If we go to more detail then we will see that he took 5 wickets in 31 balls and in that time he only gave away 1 run. Basically, he crushed the entire lineup and helped with the win of his team.
He was rewarded for that spectacular performance as well. From the 3rd place of ranking, he climbed to the 1st place by the end of the day and it could not have been more dramatic. We hope the best for this man and hope he gets well very soon to start bowling again.
