Pakistan pacer Mohammad Abbas, who plays for Hampshire in the County Championship, has claimed a five-for in just 17 balls in a fixture against Middlesex on Friday.

With Hamphsire scoring 319, Middlesex needed a good start, but making the most of the conditions in Southampton, Abbas scalped a hattrick and also a fifer in his first three overs. After wreaking a havoc in his first three overs, Abbas, however, remained wicketless in his following three overs, with the visiting team desperate to extend the match till lunch.
