Yasir Shah will remain a big part of the Pakistani team in the future, the words from the head coach means a lot for the young leggy. Yasir who had a wonderful test series against Srilanka didn’t get the same rattling instinct in the ODI series.
He was impressive in first few games but then it appears he just lost his mantra. He was seen struggling against the Srilankan batsmen especially the middle orders Srilankans played him really well and with complete command.
The good thing is that he picked up wickets that will certainly help him be consistent with the level of confidence he had in him. His maximum number of wickets in a single match remained four which also was his career best till date.
Yasir had the spin and the variations working but the fact of the matter is that the Srilankans played him really well and they always have played the spinners really well so performing against them in limited overs cricket is not an easy job.
In his best performance he took down Tharanga on a beautiful piece of leg spin that beat the left hander completely in flight and spin. Tharanga left his crease in order to get the upper hand but Yasir was way better for him.
Then he went after the Srilankan captain who tried to loft him down the leg side on a wicket that was helping Yasir a lot and as a result Angelo top edged the ball straight to long off where Shoaib Malik took a dolly and made her wife happy.
Yasir will be the key for Pakistan in the upcoming series and with the passage of time he will surely learn on how to contain the runs flow.
