New Delhi: Yasir Shah on Friday became the first leg-spinner in 20 years to take a five-wicket haul in a Test innings at Lord`s to leave Pakistan in a commanding position at stumps on Day 2 of the 1st Test at Lord's.
Shah, in his first Test since serving a three-month drugs ban -- and his first outside of Asia and the United Arab Emirates -- ran through England`s middle-order on the way to five for 64 in 25 overs.
It was the first time any leg-spinner had taken five or more wickets in a Test innings at Lord`s since his compatriot Mushtaq Ahmed`s five for 57 in 1996.
