He became the 21st Indian and overall 183rd player to the landmark. He is now levelled with all-rounder Irfan Pathan, with exact 100 victims. <p></p> <p></p><strong>How it happened</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Resuming from 269 for 6, South Africa looked upon skipper Faf du Plessis and Keshav Maharaj to bail them out. A total of 350 would be ideal. For that to happen, the duo needed to stick around. Nonetheless, Shami broke the shackles with a length delivery and found Maharaj's edge for 18. <p></p> <p></p>Few breakthroughs from the 27-year-old would rattle hosts for under 300. <p></p> <p></p>Shami commenced the series with 95 scalps. He picked a wicket in the first innings and three in the second outing at Cape Town, extending his tally to 99. <p></p> <p></p>Shami, in addition, becomes only the seventh Indian pacer to reach this milestone, after Kapil Dev, Zaheer Khan, Javagal Srinath, Ishant Sharma, Pathan and Karsan Gharvi. <p></p> <p></p>Interestingly, Shami's teammate Umesh Yadav in the current squad has 99 scalps.
