South African speedster Kagiso Rabada completed his 200 Test scalps on Thursday. The right-arm pacer achieved the milestone in the ongoing first Test against Pakistan at Karachi’s National Stadium.
Rabada reached the milestone in his first over of the day after he cleaned up Pakistan all-rounder Hasan Ali for 21. The 25-year-old, playing his 44th Test, is now the youngest South African to complete 200 Test wickets.
Rabada (3/70) bowled well as South Africa bundled out Pakistan for 378 in their first innings.
Earlier, South Africa managed to put just 220 runs on the board in 69.2 overs.
