Karachi: Leg-spinner Yasir Shah is hopeful to score a century as Pakistan continues to prepare for the three-Test series against England.
In December 2019, the 34-year-old registered his first century in Test cricket against Australia in the second innings of Adelaide Test.
“I am focusing on my batting as well and will try to score a century in England. I am consistently practicing my skills as a batsman in the nets too,” Yasir said while talking to the reporters on Monday.
Yasir said he is happy to see the appointment of Mushtaq Ahmed as the spin-bowling coach as he vowed to prove himself again under his mentorship.
“Injury impacted my performances and I have worked really hard to come back. I am confident and satisfied with my preparations. Mushtaq has been giving me advice and having him back in the panel is very useful,” he added.
Yasir also emphasized the importance of batsmen putting up a good total on the board.”Pakistan has a strong batting line-up and we are confident that our batsmen will do well. If the batting does well, it takes away the pressure from the bowlers,” he maintained.
