Pakistan’s star Test bowler, Mohammad Abbas has returned to Pakistan from the UK to begin preparations for the upcoming season of international cricket, including Tests against Sri Lanka, Australia and Bangladesh.
Abbas recently participated in the Specsavers County Championship matches for Leicestershire where he took 29 wickets in nine matches, adding to the 50 wickets he took in the previous season.
"I have really enjoyed my time at Leicestershire; the team and management have been very good with me. This season hasn't been quite as good as last season. The weather hasn't been quite as good for swing, seam and reverse swing as it was last year," Abbas said.
The 29-year-old has established himself as Pakistan’s premier red-ball bowler in quick time and now with the retirement of Mohammad Amir from the Test arena, Abbas has a huge responsibility to lead Pakistan’s Test bowling attack.
