The Sydney Sixers are excited to welcome back 24-year-old all-rounder Sean Abbott to the Sixers squad for the BBL|06 season.
‘Sabba’ joined the squad for BBL|03 from cross-town rivals Sydney Thunder, and last season was the Sixers’ leading wicket taker, with 11 dismissals.
Having represented Australia at U/19s level, Sean Abbott made his first class debut for New South Wales against South Australia in 2011, and has gone on to become one of the state’s most consistent performers, capturing the Steve Waugh medal for the 2013/14 season.
This potential was rewarded in September 2014 when Abbott received his first call up to the National side, earning caps in both the Australian One Day and T20 sides.
He comes from a self-confessed Rugby League family, and his uncle played First Grade for the Parramatta Eels.
A quality player with the ball, bat and in the field, he is tipped for a huge future in all formats of the game.
