Yasir Shah, the Pakistan legspinner, will join Trinbago Knight Riders as the team makes a bid for its second Caribbean Premier League title. It will be the 31-year old’s second stint in T20 franchise cricket abroad, having played for Dhaka Dynamites in the 2015 Bangladesh Premier League.

Yasir replaced his countryman Shadab Khan, who has to return home to play the three T20Is against a World XI side in Lahore from September 12.
