Pakistan spinner Yasir Shah has admitted that South Africa counterpart Keshav Maharaj “could cause problems for our batsmen” in the upcoming Test series.
In the 32 Tests he has played, Maharaj has taken 110 wickets at an average of 34.04.
Knowing how good Maharaj can be, Yasir noted that the Pakistan batsmen will have to be at their very best when facing him.
