Sean Anthony Abbott (29 February 1992) is a New South Wales cricketer originally from Windsor in New South Wales. After impressing in junior cricket for Baulkham Hills Cricket Club, he progressed to play grade cricket for Parramatta District. Abbott is an all-rounder who bats right-handed and bowls right hand medium pacers.

He made his List A debut for New South Wales against Western Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 17 October 2010 in the 2010–11 Ryobi One-Day Cup, but neither bowled nor batted in the match.[1] He made his first-class cricket debut exactly one year later, against South Australia at the Adelaide Oval.[2]

Abbott has played for Parramatta and Sydney University in the Sydney Grade Cricket competition and both of the Sydney teams in the Big Bash League, the Sydney Thunder in the 2011–12 and 2012–13 seasons and the Sydney Sixers in 2013–14.[3]

He made his Twenty20 International debut for Australia against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates on 5 October 2014.}.[4] Two days later, he made his One Day International debut, also against Pakistan in the UAE.[5] He then played in two more Twenty20 matches for Australia against South Africa in early November 2014.

In November 2014 during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, a bouncer bowled by Abbott hit South Australian batsman Phillip Hughes in the head, rendering him unconscious. Hughes was taken to hospital where he underwent surgery and was placed into an induced coma. He remains in intensive care in a critical condition.[6] The match was immediately abandoned, and the next day Cricket Australia abandoned the other two Shield games that were being played elsewhere in Australia.[7]
