Abbott left out by South Africa
2:52pm Wednesday 16th July 2014 in Sport
KYLE Abbott was left out of South Africa’s side for the first of their two Tests against Sri Lanka – while Hampshire struggled without him.
The Hampshire star was surplus to requirements in Galle, where former Hampshire leg-spinner Imran Tahir was recalled.
Abbott is expected to return to Hampshire in a fortnight’s time, so will be available for the T20 quarter finals – should they succeed in qualifying.
