Right-arm pacer Mohammad Abbas has quickly risen through the ranks to become Pakistan’s premier fast bowler in the Test format. Being able to employ tremendous swing on the flat decks in UAE, Abbas possesses the innate ability to navigate through batsmen’s defenses with the subtlest changes in line and length.
His exuberant arrival in international cricket took everyone by surprise, especially after his breathtaking performance against Australia last summer.
He finished the calendar year 2018 as one of the leading wicket-takers with 38 scalps at an astonishing average of 13.76.
Honouring Abbas’ exceptional credentials, the International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to induct him in the Test team of the year. Recently, the 29-year-old entrusted with the distinctive ICC souvenir as he posed alongside the prized possession much to the delight of fans.
