Profile

Kyle Abbott hails from the same geographical area as Lance Klusener, Zululand, and there are many similarities between the two. Former South African bowling coach Vincent Barnes, who now runs the High Performance Centre, said Abbott combines good pace with control and some swing. Together with his hit ability to hit the ball a long way, Abbott is the kind of player who brings memories of the allrounders of the 1990s.
