Nottinghamshire Cancels Mohammad Abbas’ Contract

Mohammad Abbas will no longer be featured in the 2020 County Championship after being included in the Pakistan squad against England. 

Nottinghamshire Club has officially confirmed that foreign player Mohammad Abbas will not be featured on their upcoming season in the County Championship. Originally, Abbas is supposed to play for the club for nine games. However, the original schedule has not been followed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. 

Such happenings led to the cancellation of Abbas’ contract because of the fact that he had been chosen to be one of Pakistan’s squad against England. Still, Nottinghamshire ensures that they will still feature Abbas on their future seasons. 

As per Nottinghamshire’s director of cricket Mick Newell, ‘We hope that circumstances will allow Mohammad to play some Test cricket in England this summer for Pakistan, and will certainly be watching with interest’. 

‘His ability, nous and experience have made him a threatening proposition in English conditions, and whilst it's impossible for him to link up with us this year, we're certainly not closing the door on welcoming him to Trent Bridge in the future’, he added. 

The Nottinghamshire, also known as the Notts Outlaws is also an active participating team in ECB’s T20 Blast League. To know more about this league of first-class county cricket clubs, check out Betwala.
