Yasir Shah still in contention for WC spot

Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood insists that the series defeat against Australia has given them a great opportunity to test several players for the World Cup squad. The team management’s major task is to find suitable options and they are trying various combinations ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

Azhar stated that their bowling will be the main strength in the tournament and hence they are more focusing on getting that aspect right. Talking about leg-spinner, Yasir Shah he said that they are trying him in case if they need another spinner in the squad.

“We are trying bowlers for the World Cup. We know our main strength is bowling, so we have tried Yasir Shah, just in case we need an additional spinner as a wicket-taking option. When we go to England for the World Cup, the wickets will be drier, so we want to see if we can pick Yasir,” Azhar told.
