Yasir Shah scores maiden Test century
ADELAIDE, Australia (DNA) – Yasir Shah scored a fighting maiden Test century on Sunday as Pakistan battled back against Australia in the day-night second Test in Adelaide.
Best-known as a spin bowler, the 33-year-old’s highest score in his previous 36 Tests was just 42.
But after playing second fiddle to Babar Azam in a 105-run partnership, Yasir took charge when his countryman was out for 97.
He raced to a first-ever 50 then, supported by Mohammad Abbas, brought up his hundred off 192 balls, clattering 12 fours and kissing the turf after reaching the milestone.
He had a near-miss off the bowling of Marnus Labuschagne on 33. Steve Smith believed he caught him at slip and made a big appeal, but replays showed the ball fell just short of his fingertips.
Yasir was then dropped by Labuschagne off his own bowling on 43.
