Profile
    Mohammad Abbas is a Pakistani international cricketer who plays for Khan Research Laboratories domestically. In January 2018, he was signed by Leicestershire County Cricket Club to play in the 2018 County Championship in England.

    In August 2018, he was one of thirty-three players to be awarded a central contract for the 2018-19 season by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

    Profile
    After working in a leather factory, earning his livelihood through welding work and working as a helper in a law firm in Sialkot, Mohammad Abbas struck with his second ball in Test cricket when he dismissed Kraigg Brathwaite for a duck at Sabina Park in 2017.

    Abbas hails from a small village, Jathekey, situated in the outskirts of Sambrial in the Punjab province of Pakistan. He made his first-class debut in early 2009 for his regional side Sialkot, who won the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy that season. He played three games taking only four wickets at an average of 32 in 2008-09. He emerged to prominence only in 2016 after two successful domestic seasons. He was the top wicket-taker in the 2015-16 domestic first-class competition with 61 wickets in 10 matches at an impressive bowling average of 16.78 for Khan Research Laboratory.

    He drew the national selectors' attention by leading the wicket-taking charts in 2016-17 again, taking 71 wickets at a stunning average of 12.74. He then picked 15 wickets in the Departmental One Day Cup, a domestic one-day competition, to further stamp an impression to get selected. His performances and fitness rewarded him with a spot on the tour of the West Indies in 2017 where he was handed his Test cap by captain Misbah-ul-Haq.

    Early life
    He was born in a small village Jathekey near Sambrial. Before his first-class debut, he earned his livelihood through welding work in leather factory and working as a helper in a law firm in Sialkot.

    Domestic career
    He took the most wickets in the 2015-16 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, with a total of 61 dismissals for the tournament. In the following tournament he was also the leading wicket-taker, with 71 dismissals.

    He was the leading wicket-taker for Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited in the 2017-18 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, with 37 dismissals in seven matches.

    International career
    In April 2017, he was added to Pakistan's Test squad for their series against the West Indies. He made his Test debut for Pakistan against the West Indies on 21 April 2017 at Sabina Park. He took his maiden Test wicket with his second ball, dismissing Kraigg Brathwaite for nought and finished the match with three wickets. Abbas took his maiden five-wicket haul, against West Indies, in his third Test match.

    Abbas took ten wickets in Pakistan's two-Test series against England in May and June 2018, and was named the player of the series. In August 2018, he was named the PCB's Test Player of the Year.

    In October 2018, in the series against Australia, he took his 50th wicket in his tenth Test match. With that, he became the joint-quickest fast bowler, in terms of matches played, to take 50 wickets for Pakistan in Tests.
