28-year-old Mohammad Abbas made his Test debut in 2017 against West Indies but has gone onto pick 59 wickets in his first 10 Tests including four 5-wicket hauls and one 10-wicket haul.

Against Australia in the recently concluded Test series in UAE, Abbas picked 17 wickets in two Test matches at an average of 10.58, including his first 10-wicket haul, which helped Pakistan win the second Test in Abu Dhabi and the series as well.

A lot can be expected from Abbas given the start that he has got and the promise that he has shown on the listless pitches of UAE. If he was so potent on those dead pitches, imagine his impact on bowling friendly pitches and conditions in England, South Africa, and Australia.
