Yasir Shah is very much ambitious to play a series against India and looking forward to bowl to Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Shah is playing and training hard with dedication and giving all of himself to serve his country in all the three formats. He claimed that he is currently working on his fitness and will try his level best to be a part coloured jersey as well.

Yasir Shah has set his eye on becoming the quickest to complete 200 wickets in Test Cricket. He has been able to impress selectors in the test format. In his short career, Yasir has already picked 165 wickets, at an economy of 3.14 and average of 29.44.

 Looks to break 80 years old record

Yasir earlier in his career was able to take 100 Test wickets in 17 Tests and 150 Test wickets in 27 Tests. If he can maintain his form and performance, the 31-year-old just might reach the milestone of 200 wickets in next 7 games and will break the record of Australian Clarrie Grimmett, unclaimed for last 80 years.

“I am trying very hard for my place in for shorter formats as well. I am bowling well in domestic tournaments and leagues. I am now going to play the Big Bash League where I will try to perform well and prove myself eligible for T20s,” the bowler said in the exclusive talk with Geo.tv.

Desires to Play against India

Yasir desires to play a series against India, and look forward to bowl to Indian skipper Virat Kohli.  “India vs Pakistan is always a game to talk about and it is good for cricket. It is my wish to play against India and perform well for the country against India as well. And yes, I want to bowl against Kohli,” Shah added.

Shah believes he was not able to keep himself fit, which was one of the reasons for his exclusions. However, the leg break bowler believes that he has been able to match the fitness standards set by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
