Abbott takes six wickets on return
12 Dec 2014 15:03
Sean Abbott had figures of six for 14 from seven overs as he helped New South Wales to an innings-victory over Queensland in his first match since bowling the ball that killed Phillip Hughes.
-
Australia batsman Hughes died on 27 November aged 25, two days after being struck on the neck by a bouncer from paceman Abbott while batting for South Australia.
-
The 22-year-old Abbott, who took two wickets in Queensland's first innings and then contributed 21 with the bat to help New South Wales built a first-innings lead of 179, led his side to victory on day three with a brilliant display, ripping through the middle and lower order as Queensland were all out for 99.
-
New South Wales won the Sheffield Shield match by an innings and 80 runs at the SCG.
-
Abbott, enjoying some slightly damp conditions, was on a hat-trick after dismissing Chris Hartley and Cameron Brimblecombe with consecutive deliveries, but Luke Feldman fended off a yorker on the next delivery.
-
When the result appeared on the scoreboard at the Adelaide Oval, where Australia are facing India in the first Test, batsman David Warner applauded on seeing Abbott's figures.
-
After an emotional few days during which he received widespread support from his fellow cricketers, Abbott had shown he would not be cowed on day one of the match when he bowled a bouncer with his fifth delivery of the game.
