Profile

John Abrahams came to England with his father, Cec, who played for years in the Lancashire Leagues. Small, athletic and a capable batsman, he made his maiden hundred for Lancashire in the Roses match in 1977 but did not pass 1000 runs for the first of four times until 1982, a decade after making his debut.
