Pace variation has proved a success factor for Yasir Shah’s performance at Lords in Friday. He took 5-wickets against 64 runs on the second day of first test match. It was his first victory of its kind. Earlier, Pakistani Bowler Mushtaq Ahmed has earned such a fame 20-years ago.
Yasir Shah Told ICC that the secret to his success is his wife blood pressure medication that qualified him for England Tour, 2016. After 3-month drugs ban, it was his first test match.
He told media, “I’ve played lots of cricket in the UAE where you have to bowl quicker. In England, the pitches have got some pace so you have to concentrate on varying your pace. My role was very clear, to give support to the fast bowlers, but luckily I got the five wickets and I’m glad for the team.”
Pakistani cricket fans are looking forward to Yasir Shah as an agent of victory for Pakistan. Let’s see how their expectations are met with!
