On Sunday, Pakistan’s spinner Yasir Shah made the most of the reprieves by scoring his first-ever century in the longest format of the game. On day 3 of the ongoing Test against Australia when Pakistan started the day on 96 for 6, it looked like the Australians would have yet another easy day against Pakistan.
However, Pakistan’s Babar Azam and Yasir Shah made it really difficult for the hosts, while replying to the mammoth total of 589 for 3 given by the hosts. Both the batsmen came up with a fine show at the Adelaide Oval and kept everyone on the edge of their seats.
But, before Babar Azam could score his second century of the series, Mitchell Starc made him edge one behind the stumps to Tim Paine and Babar missed his century by just three runs. His dismissal was followed by Shaheen Afridi going back to the pavilion on the very next delivery.
And from there’on, Yasir Shah and Mohammad Abbas have been giving a tough time to the hosts. Yasir Shah left everyone mesmerized with his brilliant performances as he went on to score his maiden test century.

Yasir Shah’s previous best score in Tests was 42. Soon after he smashed his first century in Tests, social media was flooded with tweets and messages appreciating the spinner. However, there were many who started trolling the former Indian cricketer, MS Dhoni on the fact that he could not score a century in Tests in Australia or in SENA countries (South Africa, England, New Zealand, and Australia).
Though MS Dhoni scored six centuries in Test but none of them were outside Asia. And the fans left no stone unturned to troll Dhoni for the same.
Here, have a look at the reactions of twitterati on this:
Yasir shah has more international 100s outside Asia than Ms dhoni

Agarkar and Yasir Shah batted at No8 with Tailenders where as MSD struggled to Score atleast one century while batting at No6/07 👍
