DUBAI: Leg spinner Yasir Shah is excited about the prospect of representing Pakistan in it’s first ever day and night Test match. Pakistan will be up against West Indies in the first of the three match Test series from the 13th of October.

According to the official PCB social media account Yasir Shah said that he is excited about bowling with the pink ball in what will be Pakistan’s 400th Test match. He has been Pakistan’s best spinner in recent times and his track record in UAE, especially, is quite good but it would be interesting to see whether he can bowl with the same zeal and zest with the pink ball.

In order to prepare for the day and night Test match, the PCB’s patrons XI will face the West Indies side in a three day side match beginning today at Sharjah. Middle order batsman will lead the side and the match will see the return of Ahmed Shehzad as well who was out of the international fray due to disciplinary issues.
