Pacer Mohammad Abbas is looking for his first opportunity to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), while representing Multan Sultans during the fourth edition.

While talking in an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, Abbas spoke about the lack of opportunities during the ongoing PSL.         

“The senior players in the squad deserved to get a chance before me,” said Abbas. “I’m trying my best and will perform to the best of my ability, whenever given a chance to play by the team management.”

 The right-arm fast-bowler also spoke about the role played by domestic cricket, in his development as a cricketer.

“County Cricket has helped me but I will give more credit to domestic cricket in Pakistan,” he said. “Both of them have helped me grow as a cricketer.”

Abbas also spoke about his journey as a cricketer by stating: “I have gone through some tough times in the past but thankfully it all worked out for me in the end.”

He also spoke about his lacklustre performances during the past couple of Test series.

“Last couple of series did not go well but that was due to my shoulder injury,” he said. “Hopefully I will put up a better show in the next series.”

The 28-year-old was also optimistic about his chances of selection, during the upcoming 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.

“I have been putting in the hard yards in order to come in reckoning for World Cup,” he said. “I will give it my best shot, if selectors give me the opportunity to represent Pakistan in the mega event.”
