Yasir Shah likely to fit before first Test: Mickey Arthur

SYDNEY: Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur is confident that leg-spinner Yasir Shah will be fit before the first Test of a three-match series against Australia starting on Thursday.
Yasir Shah missed last week’s pink-ball tour match against a Cricket Australia XI in Cairns because of a back injury sustained in training.
“I saw him at the team hotel before I came and he seemed fine,” South African Arthur told reporters in Brisbane.
Arthur said Yasir, who has takent 116 wickets in only 20 tests, was integral to Pakistan’s plans for the test at the Gabba ground.
Yasir made his test debut against Australia in the United Arab Emirates in 2014 and took 12 wickets in the series at an average of 17.25 to propel Pakistan to a 2-0 win.
