Pakistan's Shah fastest to 200 Test scalps

06 Décembre, 2018, 14:24 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

On the fourth morning of the final Test in Abu Dhabi against New Zealand, Yasir Shah did not merely break an 82-year-old record, he smashed it.

Following Grimmett and Ashwin, Australia's Dennis Lillee (38 Tests), Pakistan's Waqar Younis (38 Tests) and South Africa's Dale Steyn (39 Tests) held the top five spots in the list of fastest to 200 wickets before Yasir Shah achieved the milestone.

But that was the only highlight for Pakistan as Kane Williamson (105 not out) aided by Henry Nicholls, unbeaten on 54, took New Zealand to 199-4 at tea on the fourth day.

Yasir's strike left New Zealand fighting to save both the match in Abu Dhabi, and the series - now tied at 1-1 - as they reached 112-4 at lunch on the fourth day.

Pakistan had hopes of an emphatic win once Shaheen Shah Afridi had Ross Taylor caught hooking for 22 with the total at 60-4.

Williamson, who scored 89 in the first innings, drove medium pacer Hasan Ali to cover boundary for his 12th four to complete a well deserved 12th Test century.

Nicholls survived a loud leg-before appeal off Yasir when on three, but Pakistan erred by not reviewing the not-out decision as the ball tracker showed it would have hit the leg stump.

New Zealand, resuming at 26 for 2 on Thursday, fell to 37 for 3 after Yasir removed Somerville and were still needing 37 runs to make Pakistan bat again.

The leg-spinner earlier became the first bowler since Anil Kumble to pick up 10 wickets in a single day during the second Test against New Zealand in Dubai. Yasir Shah notched up figures of 8 for 41 in the first innings and 2 for 65 in the second innings (follow-on) on Day three of the second Test. But BJ Watling resisted with 77 not out, delaying his record until the second innings.

Yasir was also the fastest Pakistani to 50 wickets (nine Tests), and reached 100 wickets in 17 Tests - second only to Englishman George Lohmann who set the record of 16 in 1896.
