Yasir Shah bowling session with Shane Warne at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium
Shane Warne imparts some wisdom on Yasir Shah during nets session in Sharjah. Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne yesterday worked with Yasir Shah in the nets, saying he gave the Pakistani slow bowler advice on tactics to help down England in this week’s third Test.
Warne enjoyed tormenting England during his illustrious playing career, taking 195 of his 708 wickets against England, 23 in his last series at home in 2006/07.
Warne, who is in the UAE to promote a golf tournament, before heading on to the United States for the new Twenty20 competition he and Sachin Tendulkar are promoting, spent 90 minutes with the fast-rising Pakistan spinner who took eight wickets in the second Test against England in Dubai, which Pakistan won by 178 runs on Monday.
The first Test ended in a draw in Abu Dhabi while the final Test starts in Sharjah from Sunday.
That performance elevated Yasir to No 2 in the ICC’s Test bowlers’ rankings, behind South African paceman Dale Steyn.
