Yasir Shah


vs EnglandBack to boards

Yasir Shah managed to scribe his name into Lord’s folklore with a superb performance with the ball during Pakistan’s victory over England at the Home of Cricket in the summer of 2016.

After Pakistan had scored 339 all out in the first innings, the leg-spinner began his demolition of the England attack by removing Joe Root before ripping through the remaining members of the host’s middle-order.

James Vince, Gary Ballance, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali and Steven Finn were all dismissed by Shah which gave the spinner the first appearance on the famous Honours Boards.

Taking four more wickets in the second innings to finish with match figures of 10-141, Shah - alongside captain Misbah-Ul-Haq - would inspire Pakistan to win the Test by 75 runs before England managed to recover the series to draw 2-2 after four Tests.
