James Anderson became England's fourth bowler to take 300 Test wickets when he had Peter Fulton caught behind this afternoon - and the first in almost 30 years.
The Lancastrian, still only 30, then bagged his 301st victim later in the day, and now needs just another 83 scalps to become England's leading Test wicket-taker, eclipsing Sir Ian Botham.
Fred Trueman lies next on the list, and Anderson could yet move past his total of 307 Test wickets in next week's Headingley Test - Trueman's home ground.
It was no coincidence that Anderson was England's stand-out bowler on day two against New Zealand - he took three of the four wickets to fall.
His 300th wicket came on the ground he is most prolific, and his value to the attack is proven by his most common victims - on the list of opponents he has dismissed most are the likes of Jacques Kallis, Graeme Smith, Kumar Sangakkara and Sachin Tendulkar.
Sometimes it's best to let the numbers speak for themselves. So here, in this Opta infographic, is Anderson's 300.
