Abbott Bounces Back From Phillip Hughes Tragedy, Takes Career-Best 6/14
Sean Abbott, who delivered the ball that killed Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, bounced back in style to finish with career best figures of 6 for 14 and helped New South Wales to an innings and 80-run win over Queensland in a Sheffield Shield game.
Abbott had taken 2 for 53 in the first innings to finish with a match haul of eight wickets.
There had been fears that the 22-year-old fast bowler may have been too traumatised to play again after Hughes died from being hit by one of his rising balls at the Sydney Cricket Ground last month.
But Abbott bowled a bouncer in his opening over on his return to the ground where the freak accident happened.
