Yasir Shah joins Lord´s spin greats

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.
