The 28-yrs-old cricket Medium pacer Muhammad Abbas is the new frenzy of Pakistan cricket fans who in Pak-Aus series took his maiden ten-wicket haul in a match to fire Pakistan to a 373-run win over Australia in the second Test in Abu Dhabi on Friday.
Usman Khawaja, whose herculean century helped Australia salvage a draw in the first test, couldn't bat in the second innings after tearing a left knee cartilage in the warmup on Thursday.
The Test series against Pakistan is Australia's first since the ball-tampering scandal that erupted in South Africa earlier in the year.
Australia's batsmen had no answers to his accurate seam bowling under cloudy conditions at Sheikh Zayed Stadium as only Marnus Labuschagne (43), Travis Head (36) and Aaron Finch (31) offered some resistance.

Abbas followed his 5-33 in the first innings with figures of 5-62 to wreck Australia for 164.
Aussie legend Shane Warne says only four players from the Aussie team that crashed to a series defeat against Pakistan are safe for the first test of the Aussie summer.
Abbas, who was awarded the Man-of-the-Match as well as Man-of-the-Series, continued, "No one from my area has represented Pakistan in a Test match before". Abbas welcomed him with a bouncer first ball which Mitchell pulled to the boundary, but found his defence breached with one that nipped back and caught him playing down the wrong line.
In Peter Siddle's over, Azhar Ali edged a delivery past gully on the drive driving the ball towards the rope. This allowed an Aussie fielder to throw the ball to Tim Paine to knock the bails off, dismissing Ali for 64.
The teams next meet in a three-match Twenty20 worldwide series which begins on October 24.
