Pacer Mohammad Abbas who wreaked on Australia last month is in doubt for the third and final Test against New Zealand starting December 3 in Abu Dhabi.

Abbas injured his right shoulder while fielding in the Dubai Test after which the doctors’ had advised the medium-pacer to rest.

Abbas had destroyed Australia with a haul of 17 wickets in the series against the kangaroos, becoming the first Pakistani fast bowler to take ten wickets in a Test since Mohammad Asif’s feat against Sri Lanka at Kandy in 2006.

Pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is expected to replace injured Abbas in the Abu Dhabi Test.
