ABU DHABI: Pakistani leg-spinner Yasir Shah has become the fastest bowler to reach 200 wickets in Test cricket breaking Australia’s Clarrie Grimmett record set 82 years ago.

Shah made the record in just his 33rd Test match surpassing Grimmett’s who took 36 Tests to reach the milestone against South Africa in 1936.

Yasir reached 100 wickets in 17 Tests, second only to Englishman George Lohmann who reached the target in 16 matches during a Test in Johannesburg in 1896.
