Islamabad, Dec 7 (IBNS): 1992 World Cup winning skipper and Pakistan's new Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday congratulated spinner Yasir Shah as he shattered a 82-year-old world record which was set on the cricket field.

Shah has set a new record as he became the first bowler to take 200 Test wickets in 33 matches.

"Congratulations to Yasir Shah who broke an 82 year old record held by an Australian & became the fastest bowler to reach the 200 test wickets' milestone in just 33 matches. Last week he had equalled my record of 14 wickets in a test match. Stellar performance," Khan tweeted.

Shah broke the record which was once set by Australian leg-spinner Clarrie Grimmett in 1936.

He reached the 200 wicket mark in 36 Test matches.

Shah set the new record during the fourth day of the third Test against New Zealand on Thursday.

Imran Khan was himself a cricketer.

He had led Pakistan to win the 1992 cricket World Cup.
