Yasir Shah became the quickest spinner in Test history in terms of the number of matches played to take 150 Test wickets.

Australia's Clarrie Grimmett, also a legspinner like Yasir, was the previous quickest to the landmark having taken 28 matches.

Three offspinners - South Africa's Hugh Tayfield, Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal and India's R Ashwin - complete the top five.




Yasir is also the joint-second quickest bowler ever to take 150 wickets. His compatriot Waqar Younis also took 27 matches.

The record for the quickest bowler to 150 wickets belongs to England's Sydney Barnes, who took just 24 matches. Click here for a list of the quickest bowlers to 150 Test wickets.
