New South Wales fast bowler Sean Abbott has put his hand up for a Test debut after a fantastic outing against Victoria in a Sheffield Shield showdown.
Abbott took 6-38 as Victoria finished with just 199 on day one at the Drummoyne Oval.
The 29-year-old claimed Nic Maddinson’s crucial wicket, whose score of 87 saved Victoria from a disastrous low total.
Abbott, who has represented Australia in the ODI format on two occasions, also fired former Australian Test star Peter Handscomb, as well as Test starter Marcus Harris.
Scott Boland, James Seymour and Matt Short also fell victim to Abbott.
