“I think Yasir can learn a lot from him. He is already learning plenty from Mushtaq Ahmed and if another great leg spinner joins us, Yasir will surely learn more and it will also increase his confidence.” Shah in an interview on Thursday said it was a dream come true for him, bowling alongside his childhood idol, Warne.

I am very happy to know the kind of feedback he gave me and that he spoke highly of me,” said Shah of the session. He emphasised that Test cricket is played with patience and I don’t need to rush and waste energy, I just need to keep myself calm,” he added.
