Yasir Shah gets 10 wickets in a day in Test Cricket after nearly 20 years
Yasir Shah’s ability to run through opposition batting line-ups in the dust bowls of middle-east are well known and that was on display yet again on Monday as he created a magic web around New Zealand’s batsmen.
The wily leg-spinner picked up 8 wickets in the first innings as the Kiwis went from 50 for no loss to 90 all out. Shah returned with personal best figures of 8/41 in 12.3 overs as Pakistan earned a 328-run lead over their opponents.
Asked to follow the Kiwis were once again targetted by Shah as he picked up 2 wickets in 15 overs to complete 10 wickets in a day. As a result, the Pakistani became the first bowler since Indian legend Anil Kumble to pick up 10 wickets in a day of a Test match.
