Dubai: Pakistan`s leg-spinner Yasir Shah became the second joint-fastest bowler to take 100 wickets in all Test cricket on the fourth day of the first day-night match against West Indies in Dubai on Sunday.
The 30-year-old dismissed West Indian tail-ender Miguel Cummins to complete 100 wickets in his 17th Test match, the fastest Pakistani to the milestone.
England`s right-arm medium-pacer George Lohmann reached 100 Test wickets in just 16 Test matches in 1896 which still is a world record in Test cricket`s 140-year-old history.

Australia`s Charlie Turner and Clarrie Grimmett and England`s Sydney Barnes each got to the milestone in their 17th Test.
Shah, who made his debut at the same venue in October 2014, bettered off-spinner Saeed Ajmal who held the Pakistani record of fastest to 100 Tests wickets in 19 matches.
