It is hard to doubt the quality of Pakistani leg-spinner Yasir Shah who has provided the country with many moments of joy. However, Australia remains a place where he has tradiotnally struggled. Another such episode was on display in the first match of the two-game Test series, where Yasir conceded 205 runs to claim 4 wickets.
For this reason, former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has went on to dissect the reasons behind the failures of the 33-year old player. The opening batsman highlighted how Yasir operates with a lower trajectory – an element which brings him a plethora of success on low-bounce pitches of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). But, playing on hard wickets of Australia troubles him as Yasir averages 73.08 down under.
Reviewing the situation, the Lahore born advised the arduous spinner to give more air to the ball so it can spin. Salman has no doubts on the abilities of Yasir Shah as he also backed him to record a strong show in Adelaide, which is traditionally considered a more spin conducive track in Australia.
