Former South African fast bowler Kyle Abbott says his record-breaking achievements for Hampshire have “not sunk in yet” as he finished with figures of 17/86 against Somerset in a County Championship match at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, on Wednesday.

Abbott followed his first-innings 9/40 with 8/46 as Somerset were 144 all out, chasing 281.

His match figures, which helped his team to a 136-run win, are the best by any Hampshire bowler-ever and the fourth best in Championship history going back to 1907.
