Explaining the actual reason behind his poor form the 34 year old said, “My performance was impacted by my injury. I have worked really hard to come back. My confidence is back and I am satisfied with my bowling. Bowling Coach Mushtaq Ahmed is giving me his undivided attention. Having him back with the team has been very beneficial. Expectations increase with good performances. I will try to reach those expectations.”

Yasir backed his team to do well in England during the ongoing tour and thus said, “I am hopeful for a good showing in the series against England. The weather and conditions will help Pakistan. Calling our players inexperienced is not completely true. Our young bowlers have been performing really well. Mohammad Abbas has experience playing county cricket. There are a lot of expectations from Shaheen Shah. We will get advantage because of the swing on offer in England. Googly and leg-breaks are my weapons.”
