Yasir will be floored if he hears what Shane Warne thinks of him

In his first Test match outside the sub-continent, Yasir Shah has produced a stunning spell to raze through the England batting lineup. Even though the pitch did not provide a lot of assistance, the leg-spinner employed subtle variations of length and pace in confounding the hosts.

Consequently, the chubby bowler continued to capture the attention of spectators with a combination of accuracy and guile. By virtue of his five-wicket haul, the 30-year old broke plenty of records aside from finding a place on the Lord’s honors board as well.

Let us see what the various eminent cricket personalities across the world had to say about Yasir’s efforts.

‘King of Spin’ Shane Warne got too excited and let slip a few things.

Realizing that he had riled up the ‘Poms’, Warne deleted the tweet hastily and came up with a more subtle one.

Warne’s insightful countryman Tom Moody added fuel to the fire.


Former England skipper and current Twitter celebrity Michael Vaughan was left captivated.

Commentator David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd appreciated the wrist-spinner's dexterity.

Apart from attending the match in spirit (through Sarfaraz Ahmed), erstwhile Pakistani glovesman Kamran Akmal gave his thoughts on Yasir Shah too.

Sri Lankan pundit Roshan Abeysinghe forecasted more damaging times for England later this year.

Not yet satisfied with his predictions, he offered another warning.

Meanwhile, wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler ensured that Chris Woakes’ heroics did not go unnoticed.
