Yasir Shah can appeal against the verdict with another urine sample within 7 days. This decision comes as a hit to Pakistan Cricket Board after Pakistan captain Azhar Ali faced disciplinary charges as he refused to join camp after tainted paceman Mohammed Amer returned to the Pak national team. Yasir has taken 76 wickets from 12 test matches and 18 wickets from 15 ODI matches. He is the fastest to reach 50 wickets in tests among Pakistani cricketers.
