Using abbrnat without natbib is a strange choice that is likely to lead to
problems anyway.

Exactly, that's what natbib bibliographystyles give.  However, I don't
understand what you mean by "I wish the cite is shown as: [Author1 et
al.(2001)]" - you really want that to appear in print?

Anyway, try reading the natbib docs.
