Islamabad United’s captain Shadab Khan, on Saturday, became the most successful spinner in the history of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) by surpassing Muhammad Nawaz.

The 23-year-old cricketer reached this milestone in the 14th over of Quetta’s innings when he got the wicket of James Vince. That was his wicket number 62 in the history of PSL — the most by any spinner in the tournament.

He surpassed Quetta Gladiators’ Mohammad Nawaz who had taken 61 wickets in 66 PSL games. Nawaz was earlier ruled out of remainders of PSL due to an injury — thus has no chance to reclaim his position.
