Abbas would have been made me poop into my pants: Vaughn
Mohammad Abbas rattled Australia in day two in Abu Dhabi Test with a career best 5/33.
Appreciating being bemused by the Pakistani quick’s skill, former England captain Michael Vaughan termed him (Abbas) as the kind of bowler who would have him ‘poop into pants’.
Abbas, 28, demolished Australia single handedly to bowl the visitors out for 145.
Vaughan tweeted, “Having watched Mohammad Abbas now for over a year, I have decided he would get me out every time within about six balls.
The type of bowler I would poop my pants about. Thought I would let you all know.”
Abbas who claimed ten wickets for Leicestershire in a Division Two match against Durham during the County Championship this summer on his way to finish the season with 50 wickets at 17.72.
Ken captain Sam Billings who was one of the hunts of Vaughn came with the agreement with Vaughn.
He thus tweeted back saying, “Did it week in week out on Div Two wickets as well… blew front pads off for fun! My shin is still bruised.”
Abbas said he is grateful to county cricket as it facilitated the acclimatization to the condition.
While talking to Sky Sports,“I feel extremely lucky that despite being new to international cricket, I have been given an opportunity to play county cricket for a top-quality side. I feel blessed as I have played just two Test series so far.
“Acclimatising to conditions is important for me, as is adjusting to the nature of the pitches in England.
“My idea is to experience bowling in such conditions, which will be similar to those I will encounter when I play the Tests series for Pakistan against England in the coming weeks,” he added.
