Pakistan seamer to resume new-ball partnership with Kyle Abbott
Abbas played 10 games for Hampshire in 2021, taking 41 wickets at 15.87 including three five-wicket hauls, generally opening the bowler alongside Abbott.
He has re-signed for “at least the first two months of the season”, according to a Hampshire statement, and will be their second overseas player after Abbott during that period.
“I’m delighted to be joining Hampshire again,” Abbas said. “I really enjoyed the environment and playing with this squad at a fantastic ground like the Ageas Bowl. I know there’s a big desire at the club for silverware in the County Championship and hopefully I can play my part and contribute with the ball.”
Giles White, Hampshire’s director of cricket, said: “Mo showed everybody last year that he is a bowler of the highest quality. He’s an extremely popular member of the squad, so we are thrilled he’s agreed to come back and he joins Kyle Abbott as our second overseas signing.”
