London: Yasir Shah took 10 wickets in a Test for the first time in his career as the leg-spinner bowled Pakistan to a 75-run win over England at Lord’s on Sunday.
The 30-year-old Shah, who earlier this year served a three-month drugs ban after saying he had taken his wife’s blood pressure medication instead of his own, now has a brilliant Test record.
In just 13 matches, he has taken 86 wickets at an average of just 23 apiece.
His second-innings haul of four for 69 gave man-of-the-match Shah an overall return for this Test of 10 for 141.
That made him the first spinner to take 10 wickets in a Lord’s Test since England’s Derek Underwood in 1974 and just the sixth in all.
Below is the select group Shah has now joined.
