    70% of the runs scored by 2 players. The rest have let them down.

    Ridiculously, 80% of the runs for Aus were also scored between two players.

    Like I said in other thread, this has done more damage to Pakistan than any good. Yasir will continue to play now on overseas tour on back of this performance, when he should be dropped for being a poor bowler.

    Anyways, congrats to him.

    @Junaids

    You said that whatever Yasir scores, Shadab would have outscored him by three times. Do you think Shadab would have scored a triple-century here?

    Secondly, you said that spinners should be picked for their batting ability in Australia. Yasir is averaging 85 in this series, but what good has it done for the team?

    I repeat - you pick a spinner for his control in Australia regardless of how many runs he scores. Yasir would have been far more useful had he average 15 with the bat at an economy rate of 3 instead of averaging 85 with the bat at an economy rate of 5.

    The performance of Ashwin and Jadeja last year and Yasir now completely disproves your theory.

    Yasir is finally showing his talent with the bat. Unfortunately it took him about 5 years.

    He always had good credentials with the bat but batted like a number 11 in international cricket.

    New flash.. Yasir was never the replacement for Shadab. Iftikhar was. And he managed no runs.

    After yasir gets dropped by lambuchagne on 106:

    Aussie commentator: Yasir has played brilliantly this innings but he has also had large sums of luck!

    Ramiz, the King, Raja: Gotta give credit to Pakistan for finding the best person in the field to give catches to (marnus lambuchagne who has dropped yasir twice).

    Aussie commentator: So you are saying Pakistan is targetting him?!?!

    Ramiz, the King, Raja: Yes, Absolutely!

    I think most of the genuine enjoyment of good batting by a Pak batsman comes from the fact that Pak are losing But still, generally speaking, most Indians are fans of batting even today. Especially by anyone vs Australia in Australia as we have ourselves suffered through decades of optimism being crushed in a so close yet so far manner.

    So tell me exactly what you want me to say?

    I have said "well played Yasir" and implied it's a one off meaning we can't depend on Yasir as a "batsmen"

    So what else do you want me to add to give him credit?

    Thatís not the point, he showed fight and character, unlike the pathetic captain and his little chickens who showed zero ability to stick it out and fight.

    You show no showmanship and think scoring a ton at number 8 against this attack is no mean feat.

    Thereís more value in this 100 then the top 7 scores who scored jack.

    I have said WELL PLAYED YASIR even though it's a fluke and he was dropped twice
    Which gave him 2 extra lives and to be fair the Australians are probably trying to make it a game out of it

    However I would rate him as a batsmen if he can do half of what he did in the first innings with the bat

    So where do we go moving forward with Yasir?

    Groom him to be a batsmen?

    I agree with your point. But you are ignoring the fact that facing the new ball against Starc and Hazlewood is a different challenge altogether.

    This is a bad bad situation for @Junaids

    Who, for years, has advocated that spinners in Australia should be picked based on their batting ability and how much they can score.

    He has claimed Shadab to be far superior than Yasir.

    Shadab not even in his imagination can score centuries in Australia. Yasir doing it in style.

    I'd love to hear your views brother Junaids.

    Yasir Shah hadn’t scored a century in any form of cricket before Sunday.

    So given he did it for the first time in a Test match against an attack including Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood, it makes sense that he didn’t know what to do with himself.

    “At that time I didn’t know what I was doing,” Shah told reporters after day three of the second Test.

    “I was very excited so I jumped and waved the bat as well.

    “It’s a dream come true for any batsman to score a hundred in Australia.”

    The Pakistani No.8’s 113 off 213 balls on Sunday had little influence on the second Test against Australia, other than helping the tourists reach a fourth day.

    When play resumes on Monday, Australia will need just seven wickets for less than 248 runs to win both matches of the two-Test series by an innings.

    But at least Shah was able to give his team something to remember; a century that was as entertaining as it was unlikely, and a wild celebration to boot.

    Shah rode his luck all innings, firstly in the 20s when he edged Nathan Lyon, only for Steve Smith at first slip to be standing too far back. Then he would have been caught short of his crease by Matthew Wade had his throw not missed.

    Another edge towards Smith, who was still too far back, followed on 33. Then on 35, Shah should have been stumped by Tim Paine who fumbled.

    The fifth and final life he was given was when he was on 45 and Marnus Labuschagne dropped a regulation chance for caught and bowled.

    Fifty-five runs later and Shah was leaping into the sky, fist-pumping before waving his bat above his head like a helicopter propeller. He lastly dropped to his knees and kissed the ground.

    For a player who has struggled all series with the ball (four wickets at 100.50), it was a rare moment of joy to savour.

    “This is my first hundred. My highest score before was 72 in first class cricket,” Shah told reporters when asked if it was his first ever century.

    “On 99 I felt a little bit under pressure because I had never scored a century.”

    This is actually bad for Pakistan cricket. Yasir is a horrible bowler, chances are the incredibly stupid PCB will now keep him in the side for his batting.

    I'm happy for him TBH.
    It's not like he selected himself for the series. It was the board. So it's rather their fault than his.

    Good for him and some cheers for Pak fans. He is a bowler, should not be playing abroad even after these batting heroics IMO.

    But it's kind of useless like Agarkar scoring a 100 @ Lords when our team lost the match & series.

    Plucky and lucky Yasir Shah had a premonition before becoming the oldest Pakistani to score a maiden Test century.

    It came to the 33-year-old on the way to Adelaide Oval on Sunday for day three of the second Test against Australia.

    "I had this thought in my mind that I will bat throughout the day - and if I bat throughout the day, I will make a century," Shah said.

    "That was exactly what I was talking to my friends Naseem Shah and Muhammad Musa about this morning.

    "Then I went to the nets and batted and kept thinking about batting throughout the day."

    Shah, in the team for his legspin bowling and batting at No.8, didn't quite manage to survive the day.

    But he did manage to make 113, at the age of 33 years and 213 days the oldest Pakistani to score a maiden Test ton.

    Shah is shy of the oldest cricketer to hit a maiden century - that trivial benchmark belongs to South Africa's Arthur Nourse, who was just two months short of his 43rd birthday when he scored his first Test ton, against Australia in 1921.

    Shah had a previous Test-best score of 42 and first-class high of 71 and his Test average entering the Adelaide fixture was just 12.

    On reaching his century, Shah's average had lifted to 14.08 - the second-lowest batting average of any player to make a Test century, behind West Indian Jerome Taylor (12.96).

    When dismissed, his Test average was 14.06.

    "This is my first century and I was very excited," he said.

    "When I was on 99, there was pressure on me, considering I'd never even made a first-class century and I was so close to my first Test century.

    "It's a dream to score a century in Adelaide and on an Australian tour."

    When dream became reality, Shah conceded: "I wasn't aware of what I was doing really. "But I know I jumped in the air and swung my bat around and and I enjoyed it a lot. It was great fun."

    Shah benefited from some sloppy Australian fielding en route to his milestone.

    On 26 and 33, two nicks fell just short of slip; on 35 he survived a stumping chance; on 44 Marnus Labuschagne spilled a simple caught and bowled..

    On 66, Matthew Wade missed a run out opportunity.

    A nervous Shah registered his century with a lifted scoop over mid-on from Josh Hazlewood's bowling which was almost caught by Pat Cummins.

    And, on 106, Labuschagne turfed a relatively simple catching chance at short-leg.

    Smith started off as a leg-spinner, and so did Yasir Shah - this is what I will be telling my grand children one day...

    Quotes from Yasir Shah in his presser

    "I went for net practice yesterday and it was my intention to support other batsmen; When I saw Babar batting like that then I started to feel that batting was easy"

    "I tried to support Babar and Thank God, I was successful in that"

    "I was trying to spend as much time as possible at the wicket, as when you do that, you get well set"

    "Australian bowlers are world-class and to make a century against them was tough but I tried and was successful"

    "There's not much support for spinners in the first innings in Australia, but I tried according to my plans but sometimes you are successful and sometimes you are not"

    "The mistakes we are making is that we need to survive the first 15-20 overs as the Pink ball doesnt swing or reverse that much that batsman can get out"

    "But the batsmen should spend a bit more time on the wicket"

    "When I was coming to the stadium in the morning, I had it in my mind that I could play all day and maybe I could score a hundred"

    "This is what I was speaking about with my friends Naseem and Musa when we were on our way to the ground this morning"

    "After that when I batted in the nets, I had this in my mind that I will try and bat all day today"

    "When fast-bowlers bowl short-pitched balls at you, you get good preparations for the match"

    Pakistan should be embarrassed for bringing Warner back into form after his horror show in England.

    However, warner made his triple against no bodies.

    Yasir score against a world class bowling attack (possibly 2nd best bowling attack in the world).

    Aus should also be ashamed for this record.

    However, they are going to win this match so that is irrelevant.

    Have you noticed over the years, Pakistan players seem to play like superstars when their careers are hanging on a thread?

    Perhaps all should be told this is their last game.

    Anyways, congrats to him.
    Yasir is Pakistan's best spinner. Had Pakistan played Shadab or Kashif Bhatti they would have turned up with even worse figures.

    Don't think either of them would have averaged 60 with the bat either

    A century by a tail-ender should not really count. His job is not to hit centuries but to take wickets.

    Brilliant effort with the bat by Yasir.
    In Aus, a spinner's role is a lot dependent on how good or bad the pacers bowl. So I don't really think Yasir should be blamed for his bowling failures in this series. He was never going to take 10 fers in Aus. Actually no visiting spinner would take 10fers in aus.

    He showed a lot of heart and character in the series. We definitely need a SLAO or a quality offie for Tests.

    He doesn't have to take 10-fers, but there's something in between that, vs averaging 90 and going at 4.5/over.
