    Yasir Shah on verge of another milestone

    Pakistan’s superstar leg-spinner Yasir Shah is all set to achieve another milestone, as he is just a wicket away from becoming the fastest spinner to take 150 wickets in Test cricket history.

    Yasir Shah burst on to the scene in 2014 and just after 13 games he became No.1 bowler in International Cricket Council (ICC) Test rankings. He picked up 86 wickets during that session.

    That was not it, Australian legend Shane Warne was so impress with his talent that he offered him coaching and had a few session with the 31-year-old.

    And, now he is on the verge of becoming the fasted spinner to take 150 wickets in the Test cricket. He could also level the record of the great Waqar Younis, who achieved the same fiat in just 27 Test matches.

    Yasir has so far played 26 games and picked up 149 wickets with best figures of 7/76.

    It is pertinent to mention here that, the record is currently held by the magician himself Saeed Ajmal. He completed 150 wickets in just 29 matches.

    Mohammad Amir has taken 94 wickets and needs 6 more to reach the 100 wickets milestone.

    Pakistan batsman, Azhar Ali has emerged as the mainstay of his side’s batting line-up. The top order batsman, has achieved several achievements in his career and is ready to add another feather to his cap.

    Azhar remains 32 runs short of reaching 5,000 runs milestone in Test cricket, and Azhar expected to achieve this record in the upcoming series with Sri Lanka.

    Azhar, would become the eighth Pakistan batsman to reach 5,000 runs mark, and will sit alongside the likes of Zaheer Abbas, Salim Malik and former skipper Misbah ul Haq and Pakistan’s leading run scorer Younis Khan.

    Yasir's 150 in quick time

    Yasir Shah became the quickest spinner in Test history in terms of number of matches played to take 150 Test wickets. Australia's Clarrie Grimmett, also a legspinner like Yasir, was the previous quickest to the landmark having taken 28 matches. Three offspinners - South Africa's Hugh Tayfield, Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal and India's R Ashwin - complete the top five.

    here for a list of the quickest bowlers to 150 Test wickets.

    In spite of bowling largely in conditions that haven't always been helpful to spinners, Yasir manages to rank third among spinners who are the fastest in terms of the number of balls to collect 150 dismissals. He has taken just 15 deliveries more than the number of balls R Ashwin took to reach the landmark. Stuart MacGill is the quickest spinner having taken 8312 deliveries.


    Yasir has achieved this milestone in just two years and 341 days from his Test debut. Only two other bowlers - England's Graeme Swann and Australia's Mitchell Johnson - have been quicker than Yasir in terms of time taken from debut to reach this landmark. While Johnson took just two years and 129 days from debut, Swann took two years and 250 days.

    In addition to the above mentioned feat, Sohail also achieved one of the best ever bowling figures by a bowler taking 3 wickets in a Test innings i.e. 3 wickets for one run, only Richie Benaud had better figures of 3 wickets while conceding no run.
