    "I feel disappointed that I have not played a Test against India" : Yasir Shah

    Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah on Monday said it is “unfortunate” to have not got a chance to play red ball cricket against India since making his debut and he is now eagerly waiting to test his skills against the likes of Virat Kohli in Test matches. Shah, 33, who has 207 wickets from 37 Tests, has never played a Test against India since his Pakistan debut in 2011.

    “It is unfortunate and I feel disappointed when I think about the fact that I have not played a Test against India. Even the white ball matches have been far and few against them in recent years,” he said here.

    “I would like to play against them because they have some top players and for a leg-spinner it is always enjoyable when you are bowling too or getting wickets of high profile players (like Kohli),” he said.

    Pakistan toured India in the winter of 2012 for a short limited over series, but the two teams have not played a Test against each other since the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.

    “You feel it at times but it is something beyond the control of players, so we can’t do anything. But yes I would love to get a chance to play a Test against them (India) soon,” Shah said.

    Shah, who has struggled for wickets in his last three Tests in South Africa and Australia, defended his form, saying the pitches there are not helpful for slow bowlers.

    “People are talking about my form but how many Tests have I played since I reached 200 Test wickets against New Zealand -- just three -- that too on pitches which are more ideal for batting and pacers,” he said.

    Shah, who was not picked for the first Test against Sri Lanka at Rawalpindi, said the head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq had informed him earlier he was not playing because of the weather conditions.

    “I was okay with the decision and I also felt it was a good idea to go down to Lahore at the National Cricket Academy and spend some time with Mushtaq Ahmed (PCB’s spin consultant). The three days he worked with me it has helped me a lot and made my mind very clear. I am now looking forward to take wickets in the second Test at Karachi,” he said.

    “I think the ball is coming out much better now out of my palm and I am feeling more confident after working at the NCA with Mushtaq.”

    I'm sure when Misbah picks him he'll become "one of the best spinners going around".

    When he gets dropped after that, it will be "I'm loving this bold approach with four pacers".

    Proper leg spin is kriptonyte for this Indian batting line up. We are used to off spin and will massacare off spinners. Quality leg spin and slow left have better chance against India.

    ‘Spin bowling coach in team management will be a plus point’ says Yasir

    Pakistan’s leg-spinner Yasir Shah thinks that having Mushtaq Ahmed as a regular spin-bowling coach instead of a consultant will be a plus point for the team.

    “If Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) can take work from him [Mushtaq] in the National Cricket Academy (NCA) then why not as a regular coach. I think it is their decision but his presence with us regularly will help us,” he said while talking in an open media session at a local hotel on Monday ahead of second and last Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Karachi.

    “There is no doubt that bowling coach Waqar Younis worked with me a lot. He knows the game well but as far as Mushtaq is concerned, as a spinner himself, knows things better,” Yasir added.

    The leggie shared his time with Mushtaq when he was sent to NCA during the first Test in Rawalpindi. “Mushtaq worked with me. We mostly did indoor practice for three days, it was overall an opportunity to grab quickly,” he said.

    On the other hand, Left-arm young pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi admits that bowling in Test cricket is difficult because they don’t often play Test cricket. He also rejected the claims against him of not bowling according to team management’s plan.

    “We are not machines. Everyone makes mistakes but to say that I don’t execute the plans given by team management is wrong. I always try to play according to the plan and I think the lack of Test cricket cause problems,” he said.

    Being a frontline pacer in the Test team, Afridi didn’t feel pressure and tries to take every challenge as an opportunity. “I don’t think there is any sort of pressure on me. I try to bowl on my line and lengths and I think other bowlers including Abbas, Shinwari are also experienced enough to help me,” he added.

    The 16-year-old Naseem Shah, a new entrant in Pakistan’s Test team, highlighted the importance of playing U19 cricket to make an entrance in the senior’s team.

    “U19 cricket is essential for a bowler’s growth. If you perform there, you get a place in the senior team,” said Shah, who has been named in Pakistan’s U19 sqaud for next month’s U19 World Cup.

    While sharing his experience of working with Waqar, Shah said that the former pacer is one of those who he admires the most and having him around gives him immense opportunities to learn and grow.

    “So far, working with Waqar has been a great experience for me. I think it is good exposure and I try to learn his techniques as soon as possible,” he highlighted.

    It must be noted here that Pakistan and Sri Lanka have arrived in Karachi for the final Test which will commence from December 19 at National Stadium.

    Either you are from alternate universe or I my memory isn't serving me right of late, when did Rashid, Zampa and Adil troubled India in test?

    Considering test is a completely different ballgame compared to limited overs when it comes to negotiating bowlers and Yasir hardly plays ODI, one has to be utterly clueless and juvenile to bring limited overs references in a discussion strictly about test matches.

    It’s because they haven’t played against them in tests but looking at how well they play leg spin lately well only talking about kohli cause that’s the player he mentioned it’s not really hard to say that he can’t get his wicket when he’s gotten smith 7 times.

    Dude you are embarrassing yourself. You realize how ridiculous you sound right now?

    On topic: Yasir on current form will be absolutely massacred.

    In red ball cricket, Indians play wrist spin better than finger spin.

    Yasir Shah is a very fortunate man not to have played India, otherwise he would become a national disgrace.

    Let's not get carried away by Yasir's poor performance outside Asia.

    In Asia, he's still very useful and specifically 1-2 years ago was a much better bowler overall.

    Great bats are often troubled by lesser bowlers, no biggie. Sachin had difficulties dealing with Cronje's pies for example. Smith seemed not so comfortable against Rabada too, who Kohli handled just fine.

    In Asia, I'm sure Yasir would've troubled Kohli.

    Probably in 2015-16 on spinning tracks, now considering Yasir's current form Kohli would eat him alive and won't even belch.

    Yasir has a very convoluted view of his own ability indeed. This statement reads almost as cringeworthy as the time he held up 7 fingers in Australia.

    Yasir should feel fortunate that he hasn't played a Test match against us. The likes of Pujara, Kohli, and co. would rip him to shreds. Won't stand a chance anywhere in the world against our batting lineup.

    Too much gate.

    He is a talented bowler who is now low on confidence and doesn't have a father figure in that dressing room.

    If Pakistan had a captain like Imran Khan today Yasir would be going strong.

    Should be thankful that he doesn't play against India. Sharma and Kohli will end his career after 1 Test match.

    I understand where you are coming from, but to end the career of a pakistani senior player you need more than that.

    His case for a spot in Pakistan Test side gets weaker with almost every ball he bowls.

    We need a new spinner. Yasir is done.

    Yasir is done and dusted. His confidence is shattered. Hes actually gotten worse. His fitness has gotten worse.

    Zafar gohar deserved the call up. He should be in next match

    its a pain to watch him bowl now, wonder how many more chances he will be given....no performance in the last 10 matches or so. Indian batsmen would have beaten him black and blue given the tripe he bowls

    Again, I would rather have finger spinner than and leggy who is not sure of his radar. Especially when wickets are more suited to pacers, leggy is not a useful option in tests unless he is in extraordinary form or of high quality.

    Not good enough to play for the A team let alone play the lead spinner role for the national side.

    What annoys me about Yasir is that if he worked hard he could have been a much better all-round cricketer. He has a fair bit of talent with the bat but the fact that he averages under 15 with the bat in tests tells you all you need to know about his work ethic.

    He actually could have become a world class test all-rounder.

    isnt in the top 5 spinners in sub-continent, let alone the world.

    Ashwin
    Jadeja
    Lyon
    Chahal
    Kuldeep
    Dhanayan
    Sakib
    Mehdi

    all bettwer than him (in no perticular order )

    Yasir's pathatic form has been worrisome and even worse is that we keep playing him
    Zafar Gohar would have been a much better option...

    Looks like we happy to keep a rubbish leggie rather than a decent finger spinner

    There are problems with his action. If I can see it then he and his mentors and coaches should be able to spot the issues.

    He is.. sorry was a legbreak bowler. PCB already has brought Bilal Asif in the squad. Needs confidence and elderly figure absent in the team. Misbah can keep him in the squad but is too self-centered and jittery to help Yasir Shah overcome whatever problem he is having of not being able to spin the kookaburra the way he used to.

    Mushtaq Ahmed was hired to help Yasir Shah in NCA, whatever came of that? Looks like it was just another excuse by PCB mafia to give another meaningless contract to Mushtaq Ahmed without producing any positive results. Shah remains the same he was in Australia

    At this point in time he’s done Yasir at his peak did well against SL with Sanga and mahela so he could have done fine back then against India too

    I am disappointed with Yasir's regression. He started with so much promise. Probably the lack of test matches became an impediment to his progress.

    His last great series, where he was a world-class spinner, was against ENG in 2015.

    He was rushed back from a back injury (spasms?) because we almost lost the 1st Test from a near impenetrable position.

    He has not been the same since.

    What will it take for Misbah to drop him?

    I think people are going bit overboard with the criticism here. It's true that Yasir has been below par for sometime but that doesn't justify all the criticism and bashing he's getting here. Imo he shouldn't start in the playing XI but should definitely be in the squad. Next series is in England and he's got a decent record there as well, he has to be part of the squad for that series as well, whether he starts will depend upon the conditions and the team combination at that time. He still is best leggie in Pakistan right now, although there are some SLA bowlers who might be ahead of him based on current form but Yasir is a proven performer esp in Asian conditions and in England as well based on 2016 series and his county stint with Kent.

    Also you guys are forgetting that Yasir was never good in first innings, he isn't even decent when it comes to the first innings of a Test match, as the graphic showed today, he has taken only 36 wickets at an avg of 52 in first innings. 61 in second innings at 32, 59 in third innings at 25 and 54 in fourth innings at 22. These stats make it all clear that Yasir is more and more lethal as pitches wear out.
    Personally i wouldn't select him on tours to NZ, SA and AUS, he has been terrible in these places and his age suggests it might be too late for him to make changes in his bowling so that he can be successful in these places but apart from that he has to be part of the squad without any doubt.
