DUBAI:Legendary Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne on Tuesday said he would like to train with fast-rising Pakistan spinner Yasir Shah in the nets, a wish Pakistan management welcomed.
Warne, on a promotional tour to United Arab Emirates (UAE), said he believes Shah is a world class bowler.
“If I could find some time this week, I would love to go down and have a bowl with Yasir, because I am trying to prepare for the Cricket All Stars next week as well,” Warne told UAE daily The National.
Himself a great of the game who took 708 Test wickets — second only to Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan — Warne is a great admirer of Pakistan’s Shah. Shah, who took eight wickets to help Pakistan win the Dubai Test against England in Dubai on Tuesday, started bowling leg-breaks after watching Warne on television.
