PM backs up Yasir Shah before Test series against South Africa


The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on Saturday gave confidence to league spinner Yasir Shah for continuing his match-winning performance in the test series against South Africa starting from December 26.

The PM praised Shah’s ability with the red ball during their meet up in Islamabad. Khan said that Yasir’s presence is important for Pakistan as he keeps the strength to disturb batsmen with the variety of spin.

“Yasir has been brilliant with the ball in recent times,” he said.

Khan also asked the spinner about their performance in the test series against New Zealand which they lost 2-1.

Shah also discussed his bowling experience with Pakistan’s former captain saying that spin bowling always disturbs the batsman.

“Spinners always get an edge as it is difficult to play spin than fast bowling,” he said.

It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan will play the first test of three-match series against South Africa at SuperSports Park, South Africa on December 26.

Sarfraz led Pakistan team had traveled to South Africa on December 13 whereas Yasir Shah will join the squad on December 20.
