‘Worked on googly under Mushtaq, Saqlain’ Yasir eyes strong comeback

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan leg spinner Yasir Shah has underlined his desire for a powerful comeback in the team after returning to the recently announced national Test squad for the Sri Lanka tour. 

While speaking to a scheduled press conference on the commencement of the training camp here at Pindi Stadium for the upcoming tour, Yasir claimed that he had worked extensively on his googly with head coach Saqlain Mushtaq and Mushtaq Ahmed.

“I’ve put in a lot of effort at National High Performace Centre in the meantime,” said Yasir. “I’ve worked on my googly with Mushtaq Ahmed and Saqlain Mushtaq.”

The 36-year-old leg-spinner, who has represented the Green shirts in 25 ODI matches and produced career-best figures of 6/26, revealed that he wished to make a comeback in the limited-overs format as well.

“I gave performances in the domestic white-ball cricket and I am striving to play every format,” he stated.

He further expressed his hope to make a mark with his performance after being out of the team for a while due to an injury.

“It takes time to recover from the injuries but I am hopeful to perform well in the future” he added. “I’ve done well in Sri Lanka before, and I’m sure this time too,” he concluded.

It is worth mentioning here that the national Test squad will depart for Sri Lanka for two Tests.  The first Test will commence on July 16 at Galle, while the second Test will be staged at Colombo from July 24 to July 28.
