London: Pakistan’s former fast bowler Wasim Akram was extremely impressed with the way Yasir Shah bowled during the series against England.

While rating the Pakistan players, who played against England in the Test series, Wasim gave Yasir a rating of 9 out of 10. Yasir Shah picked up 19 wickets at an average of 40.73 which includes two five-wicket hauls.

Wasim was quoted as saying “His first series outside the subcontinent and although he’s got 90+ wickets now, he’s only played 15 Tests. That’s unbelievable. The way he bowled in the first Test match with 10 wickets, match-winner, man of the match… he didn’t do too well in the next two Tests but this is the quality of him, he came back well when he was needed. The fourth innings at the Oval to draw the series, he got five-for. World cricket now knows who this guy is.”
