If only he could bat too!

10 matches, 59 wickets at a miserly average of 15.64! These are the Test figures of Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Abbas in his still short career. If only he could bat too! Having taken a five-for in the first innings of the ongoing Abu Dhabi Test versus Australia Abbas added five more scalps to his rapidly burgeoning kitty as he completed the rare feat of ten wickets for the match helping his team's huge 373-run victory over the visiting Australians. Expectedly, he is all over social media at the moment and the cricket world is comparing him to some of the all-time greats.

Chief amongst them is South African great Dale Steyn who has made the prophecy that Abbas might soon be the new No.1 ICC Test bowler.

While former England captain Michael Vaughan has conceded that if he was playing against the Pakistani sensation, he would be dismissed once every six balls.

Although all the accolades that are coming his way are richly deserved and always welcome, Abbas and the Pakistan Cricket Board should make sure that he doesn't fade away like a number of other bowlers before him.
