Yasir Shah dismissed West Indian tail-ender Miguel Cummins to complete 100 wickets in his 17th Test match, the fastest Pakistani to the milestone.
England’s right-arm medium-pacer George Lohmann reached 100 Test wickets in just 16 Test matches in 1896 which still is a world record in Test cricket’s 140-year-old history.
Australia’s Charlie Turner and Clarrie Grimmett and England’s Sydney Barnes each got to the milestone in their 17th Test.
Earlier, Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also commended Shah’s performance.
Just a little late I guess, but very well done @Shah64Y.Double it up now.??
