    "I try to bowl the same way Mohammad Asif does and it helps me to succeed" : Mohammad Abbas

    Mohammad Abbas at post match presentation after winning MOTM against England at Lord's

    "First of all, thanks to Allah. Playing my first match at Lord's in front of a full house, I can't be thankful enough"

    "I would like to thank PCB for allowing me to come a bit earlier here to play for Leicestershire, the match I played gave me confidence and helped me to learn the length to bowl, it was quite beneficial along with the Ireland match"

    "My ideals are Glenn McGrath and after that, in Pakistan, Mohammad Asif. I have played with him (Asif) also and have learnt a lot from him. I try to bowl the same way he does and it helps me to succeed"

    Man of the Match is Mohammad Abbas for his match figures of 8 for 64:

    "I enjoyed it a lot, Lord's a full house, enjoyed very moment of it. Thank you to PCB for letting me come to Leicester, helped get used to conditions and helped me pitch it up. Glenn McGrath and Mohammad Asif are my heroes, learnt a lot from Asif who has been a great help to me."

    Good to see the humility from the lad. We should rope in Asif to teach the young bowlers. He truly was a wizard with the ball.

    Asif can still be selected. So why not have the return of Asif?

    He is much better than Ali!
    ( and )

    Mohammed Asif
    Mohammed Amir
    Mohammed Abbas

    The Best Trio. Each bowler works well and nice with each other.

    I would love to see Asif once again in action, but it's not happening as the PCB has completely shut the doors for both Asif and Butt.

    Mohammad Abbas hungry for more after Lord’s heroics

    KARACHI: Pakistan pacer Mohammad Abbas has revealed that he was not entirely pleased with his eight-wicket haul in the first Test of the two-match series against England.

    Abbas was named player of the match after taking four wickets in each innings at Lord’s as Pakistan thrashed the hosts by nine wickets, but the fast-bowler is not happy with his achievements, especially not being able to take five wickets at the historic Lord’s.

    “I came here with a vision to produce a match-winning performance and I achieved that,” said Abbas. “Playing your first Test at the Home of Cricket — Lord’s — and being named the player of the match is one of the dreams that cricketers have. I have succeeded in achieving this honour and I am happy, but at the same time, I am sad that I was not able to add my name in the list of bowlers taking five-wicket haul at this ground.”

    The 28-year-old lamented his luck for not being able to complete his five-wicket haul after getting four wickets in each innings. “The captain and other players supported me to complete five wickets, but I was just unlucky,” he said.

    Abbas further went on to credit his Leicestershire stint for his success in the Lord’s Test. “I came here early and played a match for Leicestershire which gave me much-needed confidence and also helped me in performing against England,” he said. “I have worked hard in domestic cricket back home and am now just proving that I am the right choice for the tour.”

    Abbas went on to reveal that his eyes are set on the next match, and he will be doing all he can to help the Men in Green win the series.

    “I will try to give an even better performance in the next match so that Pakistan are victorious and are able to jump to number five in the Test rankings,” he added.

    Abbas, with his eight wickets in the Test match against England, became the first Pakistani bowler to take 40 wickets in seven matches — earlier, pacer Muhammad Asif and leg-spinner Yasir Shah had 37 wickets each in their first seven Test matches.

    “Gaining all these achievements in just one match feels really great. All I hope now is that I can keep up with the same performance in future. I will not lessen my hard work and will work to achieve more and more for my country and myself,” he said.

    The Sialkot-born pacer, with his fine show at Lord’s, has also moved up in the ICC Test Player Ranking to his career-best 20th position.
