Lists of matches and more detailed statistics

Fred Abraham made his first class debut as a pace-bowling all-rounder for Guyana (then British Guiana) against Lord Brackley's XI at Bourda on 06 March 1905. His father Frank Abraham played a single first class match for Guyana, against Barbados, in 1883 in Barbados. His debut was inauspicious, but he was soon opening the bowling for Guyana.

The following year he opened both the bowling and batting in the Inter-Colonial Tournament in Trinidad, scoring a half-century (56) against the hosts. He scored another half-century as an opener in the Inter-Colonial Tournament, in Barabados in 1908, again against the hosts. His best spell of bowling came in his final first class match, again in the Inter-Colonial Tournament, in Barbados in 1912. He opened the bowling and took 4 wickets for 30 runs off 14 overs against Trinidad.

This useful all-rounder lost his life in service to his country in the First World War at the very early age of 32, in France in 1918.
