As Yasir Shah is near to become the fastest Asian bowler to reach 100 wickets, Indian spin wizard, Ravichandran Ashwin has wished him luck to achieve the feat.
Ashwin is currently the fastest Asian to take 100 wickets, he achieved the milestone in 18 test matches. Whereas, Yasir Shah is just five wickets away from century of scalps and the ongoing day/night test between Pakistan and West Indies is his 17th test matches.
Ashwin replied a tweet on Twitter, where he wished Yasir luck saying, “Good luck, may the force be with him [Yasir].”
Yasir Shah has impressed the world with his brief career so far, he also held the top spot in test ranking when he bowled brilliantly against England at Lord’s. However, his stay at the top position was short-lived.
The leggie from Swabi will be hoping make his way into the history books by taking five wickets against West Indies.
