Yasir Shah picks 8/41 | Pakistan dismiss New Zealand for 90

Yasir Shah picks 8/41 | Pakistan dismiss New Zealand for 90

Yasir Shah: Pakistan’s Yasir Shah conjured a brilliant spell on the New Zealand batsman dismissing the touring team for a paltry 90. Chasing Pakistan’s 418/5d, New Zealand got off to a decent start, 50/0. Little did they know that a predator was lurking around to pounce on them. Shah finished with figures of 8/41 in 12.3 overs. Drift, turn, bounce and rip off the wicket. Shah exploited the pitch like a magician. New Zealand were forced to follow-on and the wrist spinner didn’t stop there. At stumps, New Zealand were 131/2, Yasir Shah picking Raval & Williamson. The leggie also became only the 4th player post World War II to pick 10 wickets in a day. Did you have Yasir Shah in your FanFight teams for this fixture?
