Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Abbas said he had a “great start to my career”, but it was derailed by a shoulder injury.
Abbas has not played international cricket since Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand and was overlooked for the home series against South Africa and ongoing tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The 31-year-old admitted that he has not performed to the best of his ability as of late, but pointed out that it will take time to get back to his peak.
In order to do that, Abbas is currently playing county cricket with Hampshire and has been in outstanding form.
In the three County Championship matches he has played, Abbas has taken 16 wickets at an average of 11.18 and an economy rate of 1.81.
“I really had a great start to my career but unfortunately I got a shoulder injury,” Abbas told ESPNcricinfo. “When you touch a peak and have a sudden fall you obviously need time to regain yourself.”
