LONDON - Pakistani pacer, Mohammad Abbas, has yet again delivered a remarkable display of seam bowling in English conditions after he picked up 8 wickets for county side Leicestershire against Derbyshire.
Abbas has earned a lot of fame in a short amount of time and a lot of credit is due to his hard work and precision bowling. Abbas showed great composure in the county match as well and finished with a match-winning haul which included 2-47 in first innings and 6-54 in the second.
Derbyshire were restricted to 184 in the second outing by Abbas after making 245 in the first. Leicestershire, who made 297 in the first innings, fought their way to 133-4 inside 30 overs to taste victory.
In the previous two matches for the club, Abbas took three wickets as well. This, however, was his best spell of the season.
Abbas’s performances in England have received a lot of praise from great bowlers such as Micheal Holding and Glenn McGrath himself, which is a huge honor.
With still a long way to go, the 28-year-old can prove to be Pakistan’s most lethal weapon in the Test match format.
