The 31-year-old has been key to Pakistan's Test wins since 2014, having taken 165 wickets in 28 Test matches. <p></p> <p></p>Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq confirmed the spinner will not be available for the tours. "Yasir is ruled out of the Ireland and England Test tours and it's a big blow," Inzamam told local media. "It's a big loss for the team." <p></p> <p></p>Medical reports said Yasir suffered a hip bone stress fracture and needs four weeks rest in addition to another six for rehabilitation. Inzamam said Pakistan called on teenage leg-spinner Shadab Khan, off-spinner Bilal Asif and left-arm slow bowler Kashif Bhatti to fill in the gap. <p></p> <p></p>Shadab has taken just one wicket in a single Test appearance in Barbados last year, while the others have yet to play a Test. Yasir has taken 89 wickets in 16 of the 17 Tests Pakistan have played under head coach Mickey Arthur since May 2016. <p></p> <p></p>He took a match-winning 10 wickets in Pakistan's victory at Lord's in 2016 on their way to a 2-2 series draw in England. The leg-spinner also raced to 100 wickets in 17 Tests, while also taking 150 wickets in 27 Tests -- the second fastest player in Pakistan to achieve both milestones. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan will be Ireland's inaugural Test opponent in Dublin from May 11-15 before playing two Tests against England. The first Test is at Lord's from May 24-28 while the second is at Leeds from June 1-5.
