Abbas has taken 91 Championship wickets at 16.83 for Hampshire since joining in 2021. He was part of a powerful sevens bowling trio, along with Kyle Abbott and Keith Barker, last summer as Hampshire won their first title since 1973 – eventually finishing third in the division. One, behind Surrey and Lancashire.
“Mo has had a big impact on the team,” said Giles White, Hampshire’s director of cricket. “He has been both an incredible performer and a wonderful role model since his arrival. Having him around for the next two years is a huge boost for the team.”
Abbas, 32, last played Test cricket for Pakistan in August 2021 and is likely to be available for Hampshire over the next two summers.
Abbas said: “I am delighted to sign a new contract and stay with Hampshire for another two years. = Insurance County Championship.”
