Yasir Shah ran through the England middle-order as he picked up a fifer on Day 2 of the first Test at Lord’s. The leggie was right on the money and picked key wickets to dent England’s progress. The hosts were building a solid foundation before Shah spun magic. A spinner emerging as a hero at the historic venue is a rare sight, and it showed with how the whos and whos reacted to the feat on Twitter.
81 wickets in 13 Tests for Yasir Shah. No bowler had more than 81 at this stage of career. No bowler in 139 years history of Test cricket.

Yasir Shah the first wrist spinner to take a 5-for at Lord’s since Mushtaq Ahmed in 1996. First in the 1st inns since Chandrasekhar in 1967.
