WORCESTER: Pakistani leg-spinner Yasir Shah is keen to give all-round performance against England, where he wants to bowl googlies and also eager to hit a Test century.
Yasir said this during a video conference from Worcester, where Pakistan cricket squad is preparing for the Test series. When asked whether he is planning for a hundred against England, he replied: “Yes, I am planning for a hundred against England. When you play for the team, you need to plan for such things. When the team needs you, you need to step up. So I do have a plan for hitting a century. If I can hit a hundred at Adelaide I can do it here as well.”
The leg spinner said that he has added to his repertoire a new and improved googly, which he will be unleashing on the English batsmen in the upcoming Test series. He was a bit off-colour in the 2019-20 season, where he picked up just 10 wickets over four matches split between Australian and Pakistani pitches. Now working under spin great Mushtaq Ahmed, Yasir said he has made his wrong’un much more potent.
