Entering his fourth season of domestic cricket, Sean Abbott will be hoping 2013 is the year he finally cements a spot in the NSW Blues side.
The big hitting all-rounder is definitely suited to the 20 over game, where he has scored 150 runs and taken 15 wickets in his nineteen match career.
The man from Sydney’s western suburbs has only played four games for the NSW Blues at First-class level, scoring 68 runs and taking five wickets along the way.
It is clear that Abbott can hit a cricket ball very far. In a Ryobi Cup match against the Bushrangers last year, he blasted 40 off just 16 deliveries as a pinch-hitter.
He capped off a promising 50 over season with three wickets and an unbeaten 36 against South Australia in the final game of the tournament.
One thing that might work in his favour is the apparent lack of all-rounders in the NSW Blues squad this year. Abbott certainly has the potential to be a potent state player, but he just needs to start demonstrating it.
