We take a look at the facts & figures of Yasir Shah
Full: name Yasir Shah
Born : May 2, 1986, Swabi, North-West Frontier Province (now Khyber Pakhtunkhwa)
Current age: 28 years
Major teams: Pakistan, Abbottabad Rhinos, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan A, Pakistan Customs, Rest of North West Frontier Province, Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited
Batting style: Right-hand bat
Bowling style: Legbreak
With Mohammad Hafeez out of action and Saeed Ajmal fixing his action too late to be included, a lot of pressure is on the leg spinner.
He’s only played one ODI, but in five Tests has taken 27 wickets at an average of 26. In the warm-ups last week he took five scalps in two games, so is a clear threat, even on decks not made for turn.
