Pakistan’s former test captain Misbah-ul-Haq said that he has seen such a heart-wrenching spell by a leg-spinner in test cricket after a long time.
Misbah while talking to the media said that Yasir bowled brilliantly to destroy New Zealand’s batting line and hand Pakistan a comfortable victory.
“Yasir was outstanding with the bowl and I have seen such an amazing spell in test cricket after a long time,” he said.
Misbah said that Yasir’s performance boost the confidence of the team and their positive body language was enough to pull a convincing win over visitors.
“Yasir gave the team a much-needed confidence with his blistering performance,” he said.
The former skipper praised Babar Azam and Haris Sohail for scoring centuries at the crucial point for Pakistan which helped their team to reach a mammoth total.
“It was good to see Babar and Haris taking the responsibility,” said Misbah.
The 44-year-old asked the batsmen to increase their temperament and try to stay longer at the crease to play a long inning.
“In test cricket, you need to spend as much time as you can at the crease to score heavily,” he said.
It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan on Tuesday equaled the three-match T20 series 1-1 against New Zealand after winning the second test match by an inning and 16 runs.
