The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed former Test leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed as a spin bowling consultant for a year.

Mushtaq’s first assignment is to prepare veteran leg-spinner, Yasir Shah by working with him at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore and help him to get back in rhythm for the second Test against Sri Lanka in Karachi.

The PCB has confirmed that Yasir has been rested from the national team and asked to meet the new spin consultant in Lahore.

Yasir Shah, who has taken 200 wickets in Test cricket, has been in poor form for some time. Mushtaq will work 120 days a year with domestic bowlers along with under-16 and under-19 at the National Cricket Academy.
