Profile

Yasir Shah made his first-class debut in February 2002 but had to wait nine years to play international cricket. An ODI and two T20s later, he was back out of the reckoning, seemingly forgotten forever. The recall, when it arrived, came at a time of crisis for Pakistan, when Saeed Ajmal was banned for chucking in September 2014.
