Australia vs Pakistan

Yasir Shah thrives with the bat in the tour game

Pakistan’s premier leg-spinner Yasir Shah is a vital cog of his side’s Test lineup with an outstanding record in the longest format. While his bowling has garnered all the accolades, he has at times proven to be a handy customer with the bat as well adding valuable runs to his team’s tally.

Yasir recently showcased his often overlooked batting credentials by amassing the seventh first-class half-century of his career in the encounter against Australia A. 

The 33-year-old drove freely during his enterprising knock as he racked up 53 runs in 70 deliveries in Pakistan’s first innings.

Yasir smashed a total of four boundaries and a solitary six in his freewheeling knock and forged a 67-run stand with fellow tail-ender Shaheen Afridi. Later in the day, Yasir picked up a wicket to cap off a decent all-round performance.
