Bio

Sean Abbott's talent was identified early when he was selected to make his Limited Overs debut for NSW as an 18-year-old. 

However, his breakthrough season did not come until three years later during 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.

Abbott was part of the NSW side which won the 2015/16 Matador BBQs One Day Cup, taking 10 wickets at 19.40 in seven matches. He also played nine of the 10 Sheffield Shield fixtures, grabbing 21 wickets at 38.28.
