Pakistan pacer Mohammad Abbas continued his rich vein of form in the ongoing County Championship. In the ongoing Division One game between Hampshire and Yorkshire, Abbas bagged a six-wicket haul in Scarborough. However, his in-swinging delivery to dismiss Matthew Waite in the second innings of Yorkshire was the highlight of his spell. The dismissal happened on the second delivery of the 84th over when Waite was batting on the score of 47. Abbas produced a full-length delivery, which nipped back in sharply and castled the stumps.
The video was shared by the County Championship on their official Twitter handle.
