About Kyle Abbott

Kyle Abbott and South African legend Lance Klusener share roots in Zuzuland, and there are certain similarities between them. Abbott, known for his pace and swinging ability, also possesses a talent for hitting the ball a considerable distance. His impressive performance in the 2012-13 first-class season earned him his debut in international Test cricket against Pakistan early in 2013. Abbott made a remarkable entrance to Test cricket, securing 7-29, marking the second-best debut performance by a South African bowler. In late 2016, Abbott opted for a Kolpak deal with Hampshire due to uncertainties about his role in the South African team. Despite efforts from CSA to change his decision, this effectively ended his international career. Abbott represented the Proteas in 11 Tests, 28 ODIs, and 21 T20Is, achieving 39 Test wickets with his best of 7-29. He also claimed 34 ODI and 26 T20I scalps during his international career.
