Yasir Shah breaks 82-year-old record, fastest ever to take 200 wickets

Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah became the fastest bowler to take 200 wickets in the history of world cricket, breaking Australian leg-spinner Clarrie Grimmett’s 82-year-old record. He achieved the milestone trapping the nightwatchman William Somerville in the ongoing third Test in Abu Dhabi against New Zealand. Shah has broken Grimmett’s record by achieving the feat in 33 Tests. Grimmett took his 200th wicket in his 36th Test in 1936.
