Brisbane - Pakistan cricket coach Mickey Arthur says
leg-spinner Yasir Shah should be fit to play in the day-night first Test
against Australia at Brisbane from Thursday.

Australia XI because of a back injury but Arthur said he "seemed

Arthur said Yasir, who has taken 116 wickets in only 20
Tests, was integral to Pakistan's plans for the Test at the Gabba ground.
Yasir made his Test debut against Australia in the United
Arab Emirates in 2014 and took 12 wickets in the series at an average of 17.25
to propel Pakistan to a 2-0 win.
