Pakistan bat first as Yasir Shah makes a comeback


Pakistan have won the toss against England in the second test match at Dubai. Pakistan have made just one change to their side as Yasir Shah makes his way back into the side after recovering from a back spasm. Rahat Ali was dropped from the side after an ineffective show at Abu Dhabi and to open up a slot for Yasir Shah. England on the other hand have decided to field an unchanged side and Ben Stokes who was doubtful for the game recovering just in time.

Pakistan would look to get a big first innings total and test the English batsman with their strengthened bowling attack on the 4th and 5th day especially when the pitch will take some turn and worry the batsman.

Pakistan’s leg spinner Yasir Shah was talking to a news channel before the match (Ten Sports) where he expressed his delight to be back in the side and on a speedy recovery from injury. He said that although English batsman played really well during the first test but he was looking forward to making life difficult for the English batsman. He added that on the first and second day the wicket might be slow but the final three days he will be looking to trouble to opponents with his skillful variety.

Yasir Shah made his debut at the same ground when he took 7 wickets against Australia.
