Abel made his debut for Wiltshire in the 2005 Minor Counties Championship against Oxfordshire[1] and in that same season he made his MCCA Knockout Trophy debut against Buckinghamshire.[2] He later attended Oxford Brookes University, while studying there he made his first-class debut for Oxford UCCE against Middlesex. He made two further appearances for Oxford UCCE in 2008 and another in 2009, before making a final first-class appearance for the team, which was now called Oxford MCCU following a change in name for the 2010 season. His final appearance came against Northamptonshire,[3] in which he made his only first-class fifty with a score of 60.[4] In his previous four first-class matches, Abel scored 94 runs at an average of 23.50, with a high score of 27 not out.[5]
