Throughout the course of cricketing history, Australia has been a very tough place for the Pakistani batters. The Kangaroos, encompassing a spectacular pace battery, always had an upper hand against the boys in green. Recently, the leg-spinner Yasir Shah rewrote Pakistan’s batting history in Australia by producing a stunning innings.
Battling against a marvelous pace attack backed by the spin prowess of Nathan Lyon, the Swabi born made the most of the missed chances to score a Test hundred in Australia – a feat many regular Pakistani batters failed to do.
With this, he swelled his Test batting average down under to an extent that it has defeated the likes of Ramiz Raja, Misbah-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal, Imran Farhat, Basit Ali, Abdul Razzaq and Azhar Mahmood.
Not only this, the batting of the 33-year old cricketer brought shame to the specialist batters of the current team as they failed miserably throughout the tour. Nevertheless, Yasir’s bowling was a major disappointment as he failed to make an impact yet again in Australia.
