SOUTHAMPTON: Pakistan pacer Mohammad Abbas has taken the county championship by storm as he bagged a six-wicket haul in his first outing of the season on Thursday. 

The right-arm pacer claimed 6 for 49 as he ran through the Nottinghamshire top order before coming back to wrap up the tail.

His phenomenal bowling helped Hampshire bowl out the opponents for 185 on the opening day.
