    It is time for him to retire. He cannot bowl anymore.

    More expensive than Kaneria and wicketless. He's been found out as well.

    Why don't our players just retire at the right time. Why they keep dragging their dead weight.

    How many overs did he bowled in this innings yet?

    And when was the last time he played a test?

    You guys have no patience for Test Cricket anymore. Please stick to T20s.

    Knee jerk. Dead wicket. Shah still has a few years of quality left in him.

    They stay in the crease for 1 more session and that’s it.

    2 things.
    1 - he hasn't played tests for a long time, who knows what cricket he has played in meantime
    2 - the wicket is still dead, wait for few more sessions before it livens up (breaks up).
    I'm sure he will get over 10 wickets this series

    Not really. All you need is 1 session to wrap these guys up in UAE. I have seen many teams go from 150-0 to 250 all out

    Rashid Latif said Pakistan Is Maybe rare team that scores 400 but still looses, I don’t know what’ll happen but Pakistan will make this match difficult for themselves.

    This is Yasir Shah's 13th Test match in UAE where he has taken 79 wickets. It's the first time he has been wicketless in a Test innings in UAE.

    Combination of things that has led to this, first of all he could have had three, second of all lots of pressure was added to him before the match had started by team mates almost ready for an excuse for bad performance for bowling and the fact that Australia were only working on him so of course you would expect them to play him better because he was the centre point.

    I can only hold my head on this thread! He kept Aussies quite and ultimately this benefited Bilal Asif as Aussies were not able to break free at any stage!!
    Again lack of understanding of the game! Players have to adopt different roles!
    Aussies have seen enough of Yasir Shah! Bilal Asif was the surprise package as he had not played too much before this test for Pakistan! Pakistan always have a debutant who does well in every second series! Thats Pakistan's tradition!

    Whilst it may be true he hasn’t played test cricket in a while, has he played any cricket?

    If he hasn’t, then this is not the place to get ready. He should have been brought back when ready

    He would only get ready by playing at this level! Domestic cricket does not prepare anybody!

    It might prepare your fitness, get the rust out etc...

    A test match is not the place to get fit or get the rust out your system.

    Maybe he is ready and this is the best he can do.

    Personally, I’ve always thought he was a bit overrated anyway

    He is bowling okay in my opinion! Australians have seen enough of Yasir Shah to play him well but he will bring his A game when going gets tough and when his time comes!!
    He needs to bowl more and more overs to get going!! He will find his mojo! I dont think he is bowling badly! Australians read him well after that Aus tour!

    When Junaid got injured he wasn’t allowed back in the team. He was told to perform in domestic again and earn the call up.

    Why not the same treatment with Yasir ?

    Is this the Naya Pakistan ?

    In corporate, this is called indispensability of a person! It is unfair to drop Yasir Shah based on a single innings. Atleast, allow the test to be completed,. And Yasir Shah will only get better not worse!
    Junaid Khan is not indispensable! He can be replaced! Replacing Yasir Shah will take some doing!!

    @Patriot its not always about how many wickets you pick! Its also about what sort of impression you are creating on the batsmen! Aus were always going to crumble once openers were out! Same was going to happen with Pakistan too but Harris Sohail in my opinion played the blinder of an innings! Hafeez comeback was special, he was in his sublime touch as usual but Harris Sohail innings was the match defining innings in my opinion!
    Coming back to topic, Yasir Shah set the platform for Bilal Asif to come and bowl! He set the batsmen up!@ It's about the frame of mind you get the batsmen in! They got tired playing Yasir Shah and when surprise package Bilal Asif arrived, they did not know how to tackle him as they had not previously seen him!!

    Yasir SR - 56.2
    Warne - 57.4
    Kumble - 65.9
    Kaneria - 67.8
    Mushtaq - 67.7


    I don't think so he is overrated at all. He is one of the best when it comes to leggies in Tests.

    Yea but let’s see how long he can maintain it and you are comparing different eras. This is probably the worst it’s ever been for players against spin.

    Granted he’s better than kaneria tho

    Dont heed to much when you see such post from OP. He open threads to troll and see people reaction - its his habit.

    You'll find similar threads like, Drop Azhar, replace Fakhar with Farhan and 'We are finally Free - Success here we come', because Amir was dropped. Ironically, after that last thread, we were kicked out from Asia cup, lol.

    probably too much to ask for his retirement, but his form is a little worrying. apart from his debut, he has never really troubled the Aussies, and has feasted off of Sri Lanka, West Indies, and also England.

    he should be more threatening than he is at the moment on these pitches in fairness. he has been outbowled by Lyon.

    Our Test specialists are really struggling due to the lack of Test cricket being played. Azhar and Yasir have been complete failures. Wahab is struggling. Asad is playing like he always does. Abbas is the only one standing out, that's because his game plan is very simple.

    and because he played ten first class games in england.

    cant go on scheduling tests so sparsely, or if that will be the case need these guys to play regular first class cricket before the test season.

    fwiw yasir looks tubby to me, and its rather disapointing, he defo needs to shed a few kilos.

    There is no player that has played for Pak that has done well agaisnt Big teams, maybe only Imran Khan, Wasim And Majid Khan, Against good opposition it becomes more difficult especially when superman captain Niazi sets a leg side field, In NZ Yasir was never going to take wickets, and won us two games in England.

    But he is a match winner, My little sister when I went pick her up from school asked me if Shane Warne got any wickets and I asked her who’s Shane Warne? She said Yasir lol,

    King Yasir, love watching him bowl but he should work on his fitness, most of our top players are over weight, if you think these guys are overweight than that Abid Ali tiger playing for A team is obese to high levels.
