PM congratulates Yasir Shah on breaking record
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated leg-spinner Yasir Shah for breaking an 82-year-old world record on Friday.
“Congratulations to Yasir Shah who broke an 82-year-old record held by an Australia,” tweeted the prime minister.
Congratulations to Yasir Shah who broke an 82 year old record held by an Australian & became the fastest bowler to reach the 200 test wickets’ milestone in just 33 matches. Last week he had equalled my record of 14 wickets in a test match. Stellar performance.

Yasir Shah broke an 82-year-old record by becoming the fastest bowler in history to get to 200 Test wickets on Thursday.
Yasir Shah dismissed three New Zealand batsmen to come within two wickets of becoming the fastest man to 200 wickets in Test cricket on day one of the third and final Test in Abu Dhabi on Monday.
Information minister Fawad Chaudhry had tweeted a few days ago that the nation was waiting for Yasir Shah to break the 82-year-old record.
