    Mohammad Abbas performance watch at Hampshire in 2021 County Season

    Pakistan seam bowler Mohammad Abbas will join Hampshire as an overseas signing for the first two months of the 2021 County Championship season.

    Right-armer Abbas, 30, is expected to line up alongside Kyle Abbott as the county's other overseas recruit.

    Abbas has previously played for Leicestershire but had to cancel plans to join Nottinghamshire after last season was delayed by coronavirus.

    He has taken 84 wickets in 23 Tests for Pakistan since his debut in April 2017.

    "We're delighted to sign Mo, he's done extremely well in county cricket before and knows the workload required and will suit the conditions really well," director of cricket Giles White told BBC Radio Solent.

    "It's a mouth-watering prospect having him and Kyle [Abbott] bowling together. We hope they'll form a formidable partnership and get us off to a good start."

    Hampshire will review the possibility of extending Abbas' contract once they know what division of the revamped County Championship they have qualified for when it begins its second stage in August.

    Abbas featured for Pakistan in two Tests at the Ageas Bowl last season during their series against England.

    His Test career best figures of 5-33 came against Australia in Abu Dhabi in October 2018.

    Abbas is a typical county bowler. Nibbles it around on a length all day long. I’ve often said , and this is true of all L&L seamers, they are only really effective as part of a tight bowling attack. On their own they can be easily seen off and runs picked off at the other end. So let’s see how he goes bowling alongside abbot.

    Two things, and these are much more important than fortuitous wickets is how Abbas counters the batsman standing out of his crease and how he is able to threaten the outside edge. Of course there is also the issue with the old ball. Once the seam is flat he’s only half the bowler though the Dukes ball will give him some advantage and this will look favourably on his performance. The real test in national colours will be with a kookaburra ball.

    So lots to look forward to. Wish him all the best. He really needs to learn to contribute a little with the bat. Even Jimmy Anderson has been in positions where he’s been required to hold up an end to salvage a draw.

    Good time of the year for him to be bowling in the UK.

    It's going to be interesting to see if this County stint can help him get back into the Pakistan set-up.

    Have you forgot how useless he becomes after 3 overs? NZ tailenders were scoring centuries for fun against him.
