Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah has been earning plaudits for his career-best 14-wicket haul in the second Test against New Zealand, and legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne has also taken to Twitter to praise the 32-year-old.

Warne has been vocal in his praise for Yasir in the past as well and admitted that watching Yasir brought a ‘big smile’ to his face, while also dubbing his spell in the first innings as ‘very special’.

Yasir’s man-of-the-match performance saw him become the first Pakistani to claim 10 wickets in one day as well as only the second Pakistani behind former Pakistan all-rounder and current Prime Minister Imran Khan to claim 14 wickets in a match.

The Swabi-born was also hailed by Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur, who claimed his first innings effort was the best spell of leg-spin bowling in cricketing history.
