After the recently test series between Pakistan and England, everyone became a fan of Muhammad Abbas.
The lanky pacer has been renowned for his best bowling with perfect line and length in the Pakistani domestic circuit for many years. However, he became globally renowned after spell at Lords Cricket ground against England. The pacer is now compared with the likes of Muhammad Asif and Vernon Philander, 2 bowlers who have taken wickets in all conditions without a lot of pace.
Many English commentators praised M.Abbas for his English-like bowling and how well he understood about the conditions. After the series, county teams expressed their interest in using the services of Abbas.
Abbas is among the top TEN wicket takers of the league even though he’s just playing his 7th game of the season (Others have played up to 10 matches). He has taken 35 wickets. His noticeable performances consist of 3 five-wicket hauls .
They were not disappointed as Muhammad Abbas has proved to be a great signing. In a recent fixture, he took 5 wickets with best figures of 20.3-11-30-5 against Gloucestershire.
A BRIEF CRICKET MATCH SUMMARY :
Gloucestershire’s openers raised a 50-run stand when 3 wickets – 2 by MUhammad Abbas – fell with no addition to the scores, and then Bracey and Gareth Roderick’s 100-run 4th ,wicket partnership steadied the ship.
This is a positive sign for Pakistan since Pakistan has a test series coming up in England in 2019. With consistent performances such as this, Muhammad Abbas can prove to be an best asset for Pakistan in next year’s World Cup, if given the opportunity.
