Islamabad - Pakistan leg spinner Yasir Shah will appeal against his suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.

The Pakistan Cricket Board told the ICC on Sunday and the game's governing body will now form a tribunal to hear Shah's appeal.

Shah was suspended last month after his "A'' sample contained a banned substance — chlortalidone — which is on the World Anti-Doping Agency prohibited list.
