PM Khan congratulates Yasir Shah on 'stellar' record-breaking performance

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday congratulated leg-spinner Yasir Shah on breaking an 82-year-old world record in cricket, becoming the first bowler to take 200 Test wickets in 33 matches.

The 32-year-old broke the record held by Australian leg-spinner Clarrie Grimmett ? who took 200 wickets in 36 Test matches in 1936 against South Africa in Johannesburg ? on the fourth day of the third Test against New Zealand on Thursday.

"Congratulations to Yasir Shah," the premier tweeted. "Last week he had equalled my record of 14 wickets in a Test match. Stellar performance."
