Kent sign up Yasir Shah for four games

Yasir Shah, the Pakistani legspinner, has signed up with Kent for four matches in the ongoing County Championship Division Two, the English county announced on Monday (June 5).

An overseas professional’s spot opened up temporarily with Adam Milne, the pacer, away on national duty for New Zealand at the Champions Trophy.

Yasir, 31, has picked up 149 wickets at an average of 29.91 from 26 Test matches since making his debut in the longest format in October 2014.

Kent are currently second on the Division Two table after winning four of their five matches thus far this season.
