Yasir Shah suffers injury scare ahead of second Test

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah suffered a worrying injury scare when he was knocked to the floor in the nets by one of his own bowlers ahead of second Test against England.

Yasir, who was instrumental in Pakistan’s Lord’s victory last week taking 10 wickets, looks key to their chances of going 2-0 up in the Investec Series.

But he was left on the ground writhing in agony for over a minute towards the end of his batting net after being struck on his left shoulder by one of the seamers.

Yasir, 30, was helped up from the floor by Wahab Riaz and attended by Pakistan’s team doctor before returning to the dressing room, holding his left arm, in clear discomfort.

Pakistan team management insisted the bowler is absolutely fine and that he would play the second Test starting tomorrow at Old Trafford.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who has been called up for second Test, hailed Pakistan’s Yasir Shah as the best leg-spinner since Australia great Shane Warne.

“Yasir Shah, I reckon, is the best leg-spinner since Shane Warne,” Stokes told an Old Trafford press conference broadcast on Sky Sports.

“They are a very good team but we go into the Test match knowing how he goes about bowling and we should be able to counteract that,” the Durham all-rounder added. –Samaa/Agencies
