Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif has crowned pace bowler Mohammad Abbas the “king” following his exceptional performance in the National T20 Cup on Tuesday.
Abbas was named Man of the Match in Southern Punjab’s nail-biting three-run win over Central Punjab.
The 30-year-old took figures of 3-41 off his four overs and defended 12 runs off the final over to keep Southern Punjab’s hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals alive.

Abbas has now taken four wickets in four National T20 Cup matches at an average of 37 and an economy rate of 9.25.
