Shane Warne brands Yasir Shah as 'best leg-spinner in the world'

London: Australian spin legend Shane Warne has described Pakistan's Yasir Shah as 'the best leg-spinner in the world' after having a training session with the latter.

Warne, the second highest wicket-taker in Test history, recently paid a visit to Pakistan's training ground in Sharjah ahead of the third Test against England on Sunday.

Warne said that it was a fantastic opportunity to work with Yasir, adding that they had worked on some tactics and plans to trouble England's formidable battling line-up, the Guardian reported.

The Australian legend further said that Yasir wanted help in getting a bit more drift and bounce, and expressed hope that the Pakistan spinner would smash his own tally of 708 someday.

Yasir, the 29-year-old, has claimed a staggering 69 wickets in only 11 Tests at an average of 24.55, including four five-wicket hauls.
