Johannesburg: Feb 21, 2014
According to Sport24, Abbas, the only Asian batsman to score a hundred centuries in first class cricket, pointed out batting as a common weakness for the Pakistani team.
The statistics also support Abbas’s statement as Pakistan went out for their lowest Test total of 49 against South Africa in Johannesburg in a 3-0 rout in 2013 and 99 in the Dubai Test against the same opponents.
The report mentioned that Pakistan hired Australian Trent Woodhill during June 2013 for a three-week coaching session and now Abbas is their chief cricket consultant.
Abbas is mentoring Pakistan ahead of the Asia Cup 2014 in Bangladesh for a period of four days. Abbas said that they want to learn and he would try to mentor them accordingly.
