Yasir Shah is a best spinner in the world- Shane Warne


SHARJAH: Legendary Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne Thursday joined Pakistani cricketers at a practice session in Sharjah and praised spinner Yasir Shah for his bowling talent.

“He is a best spinner in the world,” said Warne while exclusively speaking to media, adding that he and Shah worked on bowling techniques.

Warne spent nearly two hours with Yasir Shah at the shared spin bowling tips with the fast-rising Pakistan spinner.

Warne, who was in UAE on a promotional tour, says he is interested in preparing Shah for the Cricket All Stars.

Warne and Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar are organising three Twenty20 matches for veteran cricketers in United States next month.

Himself a great of the game who took 708 Test wickets — second only to Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan — Warne is a great admirer of Shah.

Shah, who took eight wickets to help Pakistan win the Dubai Test against England in Dubai on Tuesday, started bowling leg-breaks after watching Warne on television.

Warne met Shah in Adelaide during the World Cup earlier this year and passed on some useful tips to the Pakistani spinner
