Former leg-spinner and now the spin bowling consultant at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) Mushtaq Ahmed has promised to revive bowling form of leg-spinner Yasir Shah who has not been in his top form lately.
Yasir was dropped from the 1st Test and was asked to join Mushtaq Ahmed at the NCA to gain his form back.
Mushtaq thinks that Yasir is not bowling confidently and he just needs a shot to return back to his form.
“He isn’t putting effort appropriately and with a leg-spinner, you generally must show some patience,” Mushtaq said. “He has overlooked the procedure he used to pursue while delivering each ball and is trying too hard for wickets rather than focusing on his form.” He added.
The former player has strictly expressed that you can’t discard Yasir based on his form.
“We shouldn’t question our best bowler, who has taken 200 or more wickets for his nation. He has been dominating matches for us and you can’t simply discount him based on what he has done in Australia,”
“You can’t pass judgment on him simply based on two games. In some cases, it’s about form, and at some point, it’s about pitches that aren’t generally helping you. I am going to assist him with restoring himself that will help him to make a solid comeback.”
Mushtaq added that three days are not enough to bring Yasir’s form but he will try helping him mentally.
Pakistan went with four pacers for the ongoing 1st Test against Sri Lanka but Rain has totally damaged the course of the game and the match is likely to end as a draw.
