Shane Warne expresses desire to train with Yasir Shah
Shane Warne, in an interview to a local news agency, said that if he could find some time this week, he would love to go down and have a bowl with Yasir, because he is trying to prepare for the Cricket All Stars next week as well.
The Australian leg spinner, with 708 wickets to his name, is second in the list of the world’s highest wicket takers in test cricket behind Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan.
Cricketing legends including Shane Warne, Sachin Tendulkar, Saqlain Mushtaq and Wasim Akram will be a part of Cricket All Stars which will be played in the United States next week.
Warne termed Yasir Shah as a world class bowler.
“I think he (Shah) is a wonderful bowler. From what I have seen of this (Dubai) Test match, he has got all the toys, I just think he gets a little impatient”, the spinner added.
Yasir Shah took eight wickets to help Pakistan beat England by 178 runs.
Warne also said that he may not be welcomed in the English camps so he will have a bowl with the Pakistani team.
The Australian legend met the rising Pakistani star in Adelaide during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and also gave him some tips.
Pakistan team manager Intikhab Alam has welcomed Warne’s request and sai that it will be a kind gesture.
“It’s a common practice for the senior to give tips to the juniors”, Alam said.
