Pakistan’s cricket’s leg-spinner Yasir Shah was on Sunday temporarily suspended for coming up short a nitwit test by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

A month prior to he was tried (October 12) Shah had tumbled down while rocking the bowling alley in the nets in his complete and needed to miss the first Test against England in Abu Dhabi with a back issue.

Pakistan Cricket Board, which directs consistent training pogrammes for players on hostile to doping and debasement, said it will think about the case in the following two days. The ICC tribunal on hostile to doping will decide the degree of his restriction which could be from two to four years.
