South Africa's newest bowling sensation, Kyle Abbott, is obviously delighted with his debut Test performance, but wishes he didn't have to wait until November for another chance to showcase his skills.
Abbott took nine wickets, including a seven-for, in the third Test against Pakistan, playing in the place of an injured Jacques Kallis. He was on the money from his first over, but the Proteas now have a long gap until their next series, also against Pakistan.
The Durbanite said: "I've had a taste and it tastes really good. It's going to be a little frustrating not playing for a while. I feel like I'd love to have another series to showcase my skills again."
Abbott, who took 49 wickets in nine domestic four-day matches this season, is one of a crop of fast bowlers making a play for spots in the national side, joining Chris Morris, Marchant de Lange and Hardus Viljoen on the selectors' radars.
He added: "If there was ever an ideal situation to make your debut in, this was it. I could be sitting here with South Africa on the back of ten losses and they are scraping the barrel for new players.
"The domestic circuit is at its strongest. There are a number of bowlers knocking on the door. It's a real credit to the system that we've got, the High Performance Programme and the even the South Africa A which is run really well now.
"There are good coaches and good structures to prepare guys to the next level so the guys stepping up are ready. I'd say the core of South African cricket is really strong."
Abbott added that he found the move from domestic to international cricket quite easy, saying: "The professionalism and intensity just steps up. That happens automatically.
"You look down at your shirt and you see the South African flag on your heart and everything just steps up a gear and you don't even realise it."
