The Cricket Pod: Mohammed Abbas 'very different from other Pakistan fast bowlers'

We look back at Pakistan's victory over Australia in the two-match Test series, and discuss the latter's one-off T20 game against the UAE

Just how good is Mohammed Abbas? Can he continue to build on his incredible bowling performances in the UAE, or will he go the same way so many Pakistan pacemen have before him?

Also, will Fakhar Zaman keep defying conventions to forge a successful career at the top of the order?

In this edition of The Cricket Pod, hosts Paul Radley and Chitrabhanu Kadalayil talk to journalist and statistician Mazher Arshad about the just-concluded Test series between Pakistan and Australia.
