Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah, who has been recalled in the squad for the second Test against England, believes that the opposition is weak against the leg-spinners and, therefore, will try hard to exploit their weakness in Dubai.

Yasir revealed that he takes a lot of inspiration from Australian great Shane Warne, Sport24 reported.

The 29-year-old lauded the all time great Australian leg spinner for his brilliant performance against England during the 2006-07 Ashes series.

Yasir, who was ruled out of the first Test due to back spasm, said it was unfortunate to miss the Test but is now looking forward for the upcoming Test.

Earlier, the opening Test of the three-match series ended with a dramatic draw after England‘s Adil Rashid claimed a five-wicket haul to dismiss Pakistan for a paltry 173 in the second innings.

The two sides will now lock horns in the second Test starting from October 22 in Dubai. (ANI)
