3rd Test: Yasir Shah creates history!
BIRMINGHAM (Web Desk) - Leg spinner Yasir Shah has now added another feather in his hat by taking his 90th wicket in his fifteenth Test.

It is the most by any bowlers after fifteen Test matches.

The record was previously held by England’s George Lohmann, he took 89 wickets in his first 15 Test matches back in 19th century.

Lohmann also holds the record of getting fastest hundred Test wickets, that’s in 16 Test matches.

After his match-winning show at Lord’s, Yasir Shah was widely anticipated to break Lohmann’s fastest hundred wickets record.

Shah‘s miserable performance in the second test at Old Trafford, and then only one wicket from Edgbaston’s first innings, has killed his chances to check the record.

However, the chances of levelling the record are still vivid.
