Abbott left out by South Africa



First published 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.

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.
