    "It saddens me that even after such a good performance by me, we didn't win the series" : Yasir Shah

    Yasir Shah speaking on TV

    "Obviously one feels happy about your personal performance, especially since I have become man of the series after a long time"

    "I tried to bowl with a good line and keep my bowling action repeatable - this is also something I practiced on in the nets as well"

    "Along with Azhar Mahmood, I looked at my videos and worked on my action etc which is why my rythm came back"

    "I always work on my own bowling and dont worry about who has taken more wickets than me or not, I just do my best"

    "It saddens me that even after such a good performance, we did not win the series"

    To be honest, Yasir let Pakistan down badly in the third innings this test match, he did not rise to the occasion but then again he was up against Kane Williamson as well who is no bum either.

    Blame is definately on Yasir right? Because Pakistan couldnt chase 280 so blame it on Yasir.

    Sure he is human but he failed to counter the world class batting of Williamson in his own conditions, the quality of a bowler is assessed on how he fares against the best.

    Not blaming but Williamson made him look like a club bowler on a Day 4 pitch in the UAE which will hurt Yasir's reputation

    Yasir was brilliant but this series eventually belongs to Willimason now. A couple of fifties, a 28* with no one to support and a special series defining century.

    Warne had a very rubbish record against India, in fact it is used against him whenever the discussions of Warne vs Murliatharan take place.

    But captain failed to take the review when the ball had some zip and we were at top that was the turning point plus there were lot of plays and misses against Kane by yasir initially once settled on this ground it is hard to get out. The review which sarfaraz saved first latter used in half an hour to lose it

    Sorry for him his record has been overshadowed,
    Our bowlers are the very reason we are in the 10. IF Inzamam had played politics there also we would've been finished.

    Credit to bowling coach Azhar Mahmood and Arthur for their role in their progress.

    Can't blame Yasir, a quality batting side in SC conditions would have score 450+ and ended up bowling their second innings in slightly less batting friendly conditions.

    The batsmen are to blame - Azhar threw it away when he needed to go big, Shafiq doesn't have the drive after he reaches his ton, hence why his top score in tests is just 137.

    If you open the batting with Imam and Hafeez, well you simply deserve to lose before the commencement of the contest.

    It was shocking to lose the 1st Test from a comfortable position. This time we knew it will be difficult chasing 200 on the final day.

    He tried his best, but he needed help from the other end and he didn't get it.

    The likes of Zafar, Asghar, Bhatti or even Irfan the sla would have made a huge difference.

    Yasir was below his standards on 4th day pitch. NZ ran away with this test on 4th day after being 60/4. Game was lost right there.

    Pakistan missed a review of Nichols early on, when I think he was on 8 or 9. After that the team just didn't bowl well. Think Yasir was quite tired and Sarfaraz didn't try anything else like use Haris or Hafeez. But the bowling on the 4th day wasn't great.

    Yasir drops williamson on Bilal on the 4th day just after lunch. Had Yasir caught that easy chance we would have seen a different result in this match

    What? Game was lost when Pakistan surrendered the chance to get a big lead. NZ knew one good partnership and whatever lead they could get would destroy Pakistan mentally. You can't expect Yasir to run through NZ every innings. What are the other players, more specifically the batsmen, supposed to do? Stand around and take the plaudits for the performance of one bowler?

    Abbas won Pakistan the series against Australia. Yasir almost did here too. The batsmen were nowhere to be found in either of these series. Shameful and all six of these batsmen should cry themselves to sleep tonight. Losers.

    You have nothing to apologize for.

    29 wickets in a 3 match Test series is a wonderful effort.

    We really need a dynamic person as our chief selector, big fan of inzi as a player but as a CS he picked his nephew for both formats when he was not even amongst the top 10 domestic performers which means Inzi proved to everybody that pcb is run the same old way🤦🏽*♂️
    INZI MUST GO simply for playing Hafeez v the Kiwis

    Williamson is a class player. Yasir is a human, not in every game he can pick up 5+ wickets.

    Yasir Shah is a top spinner and one of the best in the world no doubt. However, how can a professional cricketer gloat about ...good performance by me...? Your performance was obviously not effective enough to win the series.

    He was looking like a club bowler on day 4 pitch with figure of 100-2. That shouldn't be figure for a top spinner at home even on day 1 let alone on day 4.

    In the end he picked 4 wickets and figure of 130-4 look much better but it was as useless as it can get.

    Agree that batting was poor, but I hardly expect good batting from this line up. I did expect NZ to get a low total after they were 60/4. You can simply say that I rate Yasir and don't rate Pakistani batting.

    Wonderful effort by him. But the team who won the series was the 1 who picked 2 spinners who made the team on bowling merit? Bilal doesn't make the team on bowling merit and needs to be replaced.

    In a series where Yasir was comfortably Pakistan's best player I think you're being very naive. Opposition players find ways to nullify threats, match circumstances change so to expect tier 1 performances every single game is unrealistic. He's contributed heavily in all games and was staggeringly good in one of those.

    He also has shattered a very old record by racing away to 200 wickets.

    You really need to pick on another player to fault for this series.

    Why did he look poor? Was he bowling long hops and getting trashed by the NZ batsmen? Please elaborate rather than use the usual banal commentary we see from all fickle Pakistani fans.

    Sarfraz changed the tactics and made him bowl negatively early, who's fault is that? The NZ batsmen battened down the hatches and said "thou shall not pass", sometimes it's ok to give the opposition credit. NZ played very very well, this performance was more about their batsmen showing patience and courage than our bowlers failing.

    Is it gloating to tell it as it is? If he played terribly and said so we wouldn't bat an eyelid about the comment, but since the role is reverse everyone is kicking up a fuss about it.

    That's hardly fair. So since you rate Yasir, you expect him to run through NZ every single time he bowls? Its Pakistan v New Zealand, not Yasir Shah vs New Zealand.

    Yasir got 29 wickets in 3 games. That is the performance of an absolute lion-hearted champion. The six batsmen were only good enough to nullify that performance and bring shame upon this cricketing nation.
