Pakistan's Yasir Shah becomes number one Test bowler


Pakistan's Yasir Shah has risen to the top of the Test bowling rankings following his 10-wicket haul against England in the first Test.

The 30-year-old, who has usurped England's James Anderson, becomes the first leg-spinner to head the rankings since Australia's Shane Warne in 2005.

He is the first Pakistan bowler to top the list since Mushtaq Ahmed, also a leg-spinner, in 1996.

Anderson, who missed the hosts' 75-run defeat at Lord's, drops to third.
