Bio

A former Australia Under-19 representative who made his state debut at 18, Sean Abbott enjoyed a breakthrough year in 2013-14 when he won the Steve Waugh Medal as New South Wales player of the season. 

He topped the wickets tally in the Ryobi Cup with 16 and took 27 wickets in Sheffield Shield before earning a surprise call-up to Australia’s ODI and T20 squads for the series against 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.

A right-arm medium pacer, Abbott is also a handy lower-order batsman, as shown by his innings of 40 from just 16 balls in a Ryobi Cup match against Victoria. 

A big rugby league fan, Abbott’s uncle played first grade for Parramatta.

All-round Abbott a man on the rise
