Pakistan chief selector Mohammad Wasim said he sees spinner Yasir Shah playing for the national team for another three years at least if he remains fit.

This comes after Yasir wasn’t picked for the tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe due to a left knee injury he is recovering from.

Wasim also noted that he struggled in his last match, which was the second Test against South Africa in Rawalpindi.

Yasir only took one wicket in that match, but finished the two-Test series with eight wickets at an average of 30.37.

Despite being left out for the tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe, Wasim confirmed that Yasir still has a future at the international level.

“So this will give Yasir a chance to fully recover, make the adjustments that Saqlain Mushtaq and the other coaches recommend. Hopefully he will be pain-free and injury-free in future and he can serve Pakistan for the next three years at least,” he told PakPassion.

Pakistan will play three ODIs and four T20 Internationals against South Africa before heading to Zimbabwe for two Tests and three T20 Internationals.

Pakistan departed for South Africa on March 26 and the tour will commence on April 2 and conclude on April 16. The ODI series will be played first.

The men in green will then head to Zimbabwe on April 17, but the dates for the matches have yet to be confirmed.

However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) noted that the national team will travel back to Lahore from Bulawayo on May 12.
