Mushtaq Ahmed, considered to be one of Pakistan’s greatest spinners, has lavished praise on Yasir Shah for the huge amount of work he has put in to improve his fitness.

A spinner himself, Yasir had spent a lengthy period of time on the sidelines battling injuries before making a comeback during Pakistan’s Test tour of Sri Lanka in July.

He took part in both Tests the two sides played and picked up nine wickets at an average of 39.

“He [Yasir] has worked a lot on his fitness,” Mushtaq told Cricket Pakistan.
