Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Abbas has admitted that he is eager to represent his country in the shorter formats of the game.
Abbas has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in Test cricket after taking 42 wickets in eight Tests at an average of 17.69.
However, after representing Leicestershire in the Vitality Blast, which is England’s domestic Twenty20 competition, the 28-year-old conceded that he wants to make his debut in both ODIs and Twenty20 Internationals in the near future.
In nine Vitality Blast matches for Leicestershire, Abbas took seven wickets at an average of 39.71.
“At the moment, Test cricket has been my main focus as far as my international career is concerned, but, I had a chance to play nine T20 games for Leicestershire this season and that was a good experience as I took seven wickets,” he told PakPassion. “I now have experience of playing in foreign conditions and am working hard and I will be ready to help out whenever Pakistan needs my services to play in the shorter formats of the game.”
