The 49-year-old made this prediction while responding to a tweet about a possible playing XI for Pakistan against England
Australia’s former left-arm wrist spin bowler Brad Hogg, in a tweet on Tuesday, made a bold prediction claiming that Pakistan’s fast-bowler Mohammad Abbas would be the leading wicket-taker in the Men in Green’s upcoming tour of England which is scheduled for August.
The 49-year-old made this prediction while responding to a tweet about a possible playing XI for Pakistan against England on their home turf.
“Mohammad Abbas leading wicket-taker for the tour. #Cricket #PCB #Abbas” Hogg tweeted.
Abbas has been a revelation for Pakistan in Test cricket picking up 75 wickets in just 18 matches with an extraordinary average of 20.8. His significance was further enhanced after the early Test retirements of fast-bowlers Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz. Abbas now heads a relatively green yet talented bowling line-up that is tasked to take on the world.
The former Aussie spinner has a wealth of experience which adds weight to his prediction about Abbas. The charismatic former spinner featured in 7 Tests, 123 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 15 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) for Australia while picking up 17 wickets, 156 wickets and 7 wickets respectively in each format.
