Abu Dhabi: Afghanistan’s leg-spinner has bagged a unique record of bowling the most number of overs in a Test match in the 21st century.

The 22-year-old delivered 99.2 overs in the ongoing Test match between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.

Australia’s leg-spin legend Shane Warne previously held this record for 19 years. He bowled 98 overs in second Test against South Africa at Newlands, Cape Town in 2002.
