Mohammad Abbas has England’s top-order in his sights.

Summary

  • Abbas has taken 23 wickets at 21 apiece in his first five Tests for Pakistan Mohammad Abbas has England’s top-order in his sights.
  • My idea is to experience bowling in such conditions which will be similar to those I will encounter when I play the Tests series for Pakistan against England in the coming weeks.
  • Given your bowling style, many believe you could be a success for Pakistan in England and Ireland in the Test series…
  • That was a disappointment and a regret that I have carried with me, but I am hopeful that conditions in England will be much better for my style of bowling, and I will be able to perform well to help Pakistan to victory in the upcoming series.
