Mohammad Abbas, a Pakistani bowler, is sad that he was not chosen to represent his country during the recently finished home Test season.

Abbas also mentioned his performance in county cricket last season.

“I participated in our local domestic season while simultaneously playing in County Cricket, so it’s evident that I’m dissatisfied with my non-selection,” Abbas said in an exclusive interview with private TV channel.

“But I’ll keep working hard since it’s the only thing I can do now that selection is out of my hands,” he continued.

Abbas also stated that he will play for Hampshire in 2023 and 2024 after signing a two-year contract with the county side.

“During 2022 season for Hampshire, I took 50 wickets in 12 matches. “I also claimed two fifers during six Quaid-e-Azam Trophy bouts, despite the fact that two to three matches were cancelled owing to rain,” he stated.

Abbas also provided some fitness suggestions for quick bowlers.

“I believe our fast-bowlers should play domestic cricket to improve their fitness. They play Test matches immediately after playing T20 cricket, which causes fitness concerns. Pacers will continue to suffer such challenges as long as they do not play lengthier formats,” he stated.

Abbas also reached 600 wickets in first-class cricket last year. He accomplished the feat while playing for Southern Punjab against Northern in an Abbottabad Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match.

Abbas became the 13th Pakistani bowler to reach 600 first-class wickets.

After making his debut in 2017, the 32-year-old has played 25 Tests and three One-Day Internationals for Pakistan. He has, however, been out of the national team since August of 2021.

Abbas worked as an office boy in a court as a teenager, recording documents for real estate cases. He had previously worked as a welder and a manufacturing worker.

Abbas continued to play cricket even during his arduous years spent working as a welder, even if it meant going directly to the cricket grounds after spending long hours in the factory.

Abbas looks up to Glenn McGrath, Shaun Pollock, and James Anderson for their lines and lengths when he bowls his accurate wicket-to-wicket deliveries. He also played Grade II cricket for two years with Mohammad Asif, who he credits with greatly influencing his bowling.
