Bio

It is easy to draw some comparisons between Kyle Abbott and South African great Lance Klusener. Both hail from Zuzuland, and in his short career to date Abbott has shown an ability to bowl with good pace and swing, as well a knack for hitting the ball a long way.

An impressive first class season in 2012-13 led to Abbott’s first international Test cap against Pakistan in early 2013. He made a memorable debut, taking 7-29 in what was the second best performance by a South African bowler on debut.

After making two one-day appearances for South Africa in March 2013, Abbott fell out of favour with selectors.

But the 27-year-old was added to the Proteas’ Twenty20 and Test squads to cover for injured players in early 2014, and was named in the Proteas’ one-day squads for tours of Zimbabwe, New Zealand and Australia.
