Pakistani pacesetter Mohammad Abbas continued his rich form in the on-going County Championship. In the on-going Division One match between Hampshire and Yorkshire, Abbas took a six-wicket-haul at Scarborough. However, his in-swinging delivery to sack Matthew Waite in Yorkshire’s second innings was the pinnacle of his spell. The dismissal came on the second throw of the 84th over when Waite hit for the score of 47. Abbas produced a full-length throw, which came back sharp and shoved the stumps in.
The video was shared by the County Championship on their official Twitter handle.
