Talking to reporters Abbas said about his key to success in taking wickets is his understanding of conditions;
“When the ball starts to reverse, I try to attack then. I have been successful because of that. If you talk about pace, my fastest ball here was 138.1km/h and my average speed is 130. I am happy with my speed. But I want to keep on working on my fitness to become a better bowler”, Abbas told reporters. “
Pakistan has really found a gem and a remarkable addition in Pakistan bowling line up that can be a major plus point for Pakistan team in 2019 ICC World Cup England.
