Karachi: Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg thinks that pacer Mohammad Abbas would be the leading wicket-taker on Pakistan’s upcoming tour of England which is scheduled for August.

The 49-year-old in a tweet on Tuesday made a prediction claiming that right-arm bowler Abbas would be the leading wicket-taker in the three-match series.

“Mohammad Abbas leading wicket-taker for the tour,” Hogg tweeted.
