In the ongoing clash between Hampshire and Essex in the County Championship Division One 2023, Pakistani pace sensation Mohammad Abbas once again showcased his exceptional skills. Abbas, who has been among the leading wicket-takers in the championship, delivered a stunning blow by dismissing the legendary Alastair Cook with a remarkable delivery.

The incident took place in the second over of Essex’s innings after they won the toss and chose to bat. Abbas, coming round the wicket, bowled a delivery that deceived Cook completely. The former England captain attempted a defensive shot, but the ball skillfully moved past his outside edge and crashed into his off stump. Cook’s mistimed shot, playing down the wrong line, resulted in his dismissal.
