Profile

Kyle Abbott hails from the same area as Lance Klusener - Zululand - and that's not all the two have in common. Abbott followed Klusener as the second-most successful South Africa bowler on debut. His 7 for 29 in the first innings against Pakistan in Centurion in 2013 was a demonstration of speed and swing on a spicy surface.
