Mohammad Abbas and Kyle Abbott wreaked havoc against Leicestershire as their top order slumped to 28 for 5 before play was stopped due to rain.

Hampshire started day three on 223 for 7 under dark skies at the Ageas Bowl and added just ten runs to their overnight score before Leicestershire bowlers ran through their batting quickly. Ian Holland was the top-scorer for Hampshire CCC, with a solid 82 to put a reasonable total on board.

Keith Barker struck first two balls of the day three with back-to-back boundaries before he was caught at gully for 24. Kyle Abbott was trapped leg-before and Brad Wheal soon followed.

But the reply from Hampshire was astonishing with new ball bowlers Mohammad Abbas and Kyle Abbott tormenting Leicestershire batting, in conditions which were absolutely ideal for the Test grade quicks. 

Opening batsman Hasan Azad survived six balls before getting out leg-before off Abbott’s bowling. His opening partner Sam Evans soon followed, and this time the hunter was Mohammad Abbas. 

Australian Test opener Marcus Harris was the next one to leave, when he offered no shot to a ripper from Abbas, which jagged back to kiss the top of off-stump to leave Leicestershire tottering at 8 for 3. 

Skipper Colin Ackermann was unable to save the sinking ship when he was cleaned up by Abbott, comprehensively beaten through the gate. Lewis Hill also followed the skipper’s route – this time though Abbott got the ball to straighten to get Hill’s outside edge as five wickets fell in a space of just 45 balls. 

Wicket-keeper batsman Rishi Patel showed a little resistance with consecutive boundaries off Abbott before players left the field. Leicestershire require 56 more runs to avoid the follow-on.
