Pakistan fast bowling sensation Shaheen Afridi becomes the youngest player to take 5 wickets in a single Test match.
The 19- year-old made history during this year’s World Cup and has now won the Test series against Sri Lanka once again.
He credited pace bowler Muhammad Abbas for this achievement as he didn’t allow the other team to score, letting Shaheen take the wickets easily.
He is now the 5th youngest Pakistani player to do so in a test match.
Mohammad Amir still holds the crown as the youngest at the age of 17.
Wasim Akram comes second thanks to the record he made against New Zealand in 1985.
Shahid Nazir and Waqar Younis come close behind Wasim Akram, taking 5 wickets each in their matches against Zimbabwe and New Zealand respectively.
In terms of World Cup performances, Shaheen currently has 15 wickets, the most successful at that age, surpassing Abdul Razzaq, who held 13 as a teenager.
