Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah wished he had a Test face off with ace Indian off-spinner Ravichandaran Ashwin.
Shah became the joint-second fastest to 100 wickets in Test match cricket when he took 5 for 121 in his 17th match against West Indies in the first day-night Test in Dubai on Sunday.
Interestingly Ashwin wished Shah on Twitter and the leg-spinner acknowledged that Ashwin's best luck message was an inspiration.
"Yes, he had said good luck so I am thankful," Shah said of Ashwin's tweet.
"It's naturally motivating when a great bowler who is second fastest to 200 tweets a good luck message and it's really a great motivation for me."
Ashwin, who became the second fastest to 200 wickets in the recently concluded home series against New Zealand had wished Shah "best of luck" in a tweet last week.
"Good luck, may the force be with him. He is such a delight to watch," Ashwin had tweeted last week.
On Shah achieving the record, Ashwin tweeted "Just a little late I guess, but very well done @Shah64Y double it up now."
Shah wished he play against Ashwin and that he wants to feature in a India-Pakistan Test match.
"Every Pakistani and Indian player has this wish to play against each other. I have not played a Test against India so it's my wish."
Since 2007, India and Pakistan have not played a Test series owing to political tensions.
With India number one in Test rankings and Pakistan number two, there was a suggestion of having a one-off Test to determine a world Test champion.
But a renewed tension between the two arch-rivals since an attack on a military base in Kashmir have left the two nations close to war.
Shah further stated that he has faced no problems in his comeback from a failed dope test of last year.
"I was lucky that I was suspended for three months only and I did not lose any Test series and since my come back I have found no problems," he signed off.
