Legendary Australian leg-spinner Yasir Shah expressed his pleasure to watch rising Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah. Warne said would like to train with fast-rising Pakistan spinner Yasir Shah in the nets, a wish Pakistan management hailed.

Warne was in Dubai on a promotional tour, said he believes Shah is the 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.

Shane in his 145 Test career took 708 wickets which are second highest after Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan 800. He 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, apparently started bowling leg spin after watching Warne on television. 

Warne met Shah in Adelaide during the World Cup 2015 and passed on some useful tips to the Pakistani spinner, as per the claims.

Shane Warne and Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar are organizing three Twenty 20 matches for veteran cricketers in the United States next month.

Warne wants to get some net practice before the tournament start.

“I am trying to get as much practice in as I can. I might not be that welcome down in the England camp, so I might have to try the Pakistan camp to have a bowl,” he said.

“I think he (Shah) is a wonderful bowler. From what I have seen of this (Dubai) Test match, he has got all the toys, I just think he gets a little impatient.”

Pakistan team manager Intikhab Alam welcomed Warne’s reported request.

“No one has approached us as yet,” Alam said. “But if someone does then Warne is welcome because it’s a common practice that greats pass tips to youngsters and it will be a kind gesture.”

Pakistan lead the three-match series 1-0 with the final match in Sharjah from Saturday.
