Bio

Sean Abbott's talent was identified early when he was selected to make his List A debut as an 18-year-old, however, his breakthrough season did not come until the 2013/14 summer which saw him finish as the leading wicket taker in the Ryobi Cup with 16, while taking 27 wickets in the Sheffield Shield. 

He went on to win the Steve Waugh Medal as the NSW Blues Player of the Year before receiving a call-up to the Australian ODI and T20 squads to play Pakistan in the UAE. 

Abbott took the prized wicket of Shahid Afridi in the first over of his T20 international debut, trapping him in front plumb lbw with his fourth ball.

Last summer Abbott took 23 wickets in the Sheffield Shield, including 6-14 against Queensland at the SCG, and five wickets in the Matador BBQs One Day Cup. He was also judged the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year.
