Former skipper of Indian Women’s cricket team Anjum Chopra Sunday congratulated Pakistan’s leg-spinner Yasir Shah for becoming the second joint-fastest bowler to take 100 wickets in all Test cricket.

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.
