Leading Wicket Taker in England vs Pakistan Test Series 2016
Question in detailA match-haul of 10 wickets is what every bowler dreams of achieving, at least once in his career. But, there are not many who have acquired the record in the cricketing world. The number is apparently countable, and among them is Yasir Shah from Pakistan. It was Yasir Shah whose high-flown bowling performance gave Pakistan a fairytale start at Lord's in the first Test. He bagged 10 wickets, piloting his team to the first ever Test victory in 20 years at Lord's, the home of cricket. However, in the second Test, he couldn't prove to be as influential as expected. He ended up taking just 1 wicket. This puts a question mark on his potential to be the leading wicket taker in England Vs Pakistan test series 2016. Nonetheless, Pakistani supporter are still expecting Yasir to end up the series being the highest wicket taker. To claim the title of the leading wicket taker of the series, Yasir will have to come up with something out of the blue in the remaining two matches.
As of now, Yasir is 2nd in the table of leading wicket takers for his 11 wickets. Chris Woakes, on the other hand, tops the table with 18 wickets. With two matches remaining in the ongoing England Vs Pakistan test series 2016, Yasir is far behind than Woakes the highest wicket taker. Also, it's worth considering that magic doesn't happen every day. So, Yasir's fans should not expect much from him.
