Profile

Son of a farmer in Pakistan, Yasir Shah made his debut in first-class cricket at the mere age of 15. He represented his country right from the U15 level till the U21 level and has since then gone from strength to strength. He has also played for the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, Abbottabad, Pakistan Customs and the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited.

The leg spinner boasts an impressive record in the domestic circuit and was given a chance to represent Pakistan at the international level in 2011. With 148 wickets in 46 first-class appearances, he was included in the Pakistani squad for their Zimbabwe tour. While the absence of Danish Kaneria hurts Pakistan, Yasir's inclusion is a test of his talent. He made his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in the third and final match of the series.
