Pakistani spinner Yasir Shah might not be able to play in the starting matches of the Pakistan-Australia cricket series 2016-17, due to his unfitness.
According to BBC Urdu, PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) has decided to send the 17 years old left arm spinner Muhammad Asghar as a backup for the leg-spinner Yasir Shah. The team management had requested the PCB to do so after Yasir Shah became unfit.
The young cricket star Muhammad Asghar owns a good record in first class cricket. In his match against the ADB (Agricultural Development Bank) he got the record nine wickets in two innings while playing on behalf of the NBP (National Bank of Pakistan).
During his current visit to Zimbabwe as the member of A team, Muhammad Asghar had earned seven wickets each of the two tests and five wickets in a limited over match; these were the non-official games.
Currently, he plays on behalf of the UBL (United Bank Limited). Nowadays the cricketer is in Bangladesh for playing BPL (Bangladesh Premium League). Muhammad Asghar is also a part of the PSL franchise Peshawar Zalmi.
If the young cricketer gets the opportunity to play international cricket while being a part of the national team, then he would be able to evaluate his performance and allow the PCB to consider him as a regular member of the squad.
