All the reactions from the cricketing world as Mohammad Abbas produced another incisive spell on the fourth day of the Abu Dhabi Test

Mohammad Abbas rocked Australia's batting order once again on day four of the Abu Dhabi Test with his nagging line and length, en route to becoming the first pace bowler to pick up 15 wickets in a Test series in the UAE.

Australia, who have had their share of troubles against spin in Asia, did all they could to prepare for that challenge this time. What could go wrong, after all?

Mohammad Abbas, that's what.

Now, there is one fortune-teller you have every reason to believe.

If only bowling were that simple, eh?

Leicestershire's coach couldn't wait to have a world-class bowler back to lead his attack for the 2019 season.

The comparisons have been coming for a while, and the numbers are now starting to make a case. Who knows how far this could go?
