Haseeb Hameed was born 17 January 1997. Baby! Well, not really. Hameed is an English cricketer who plays for Lancashire and England. He is primarily a right-handed batsman and bowls right-arm leg spin, and predominantly fields at short leg. Erm…do you have any idea of what I have just written there? Welcome to the club, mate. Look, all you need to know is that Hameed is 19, shows enormous potential as a cricket player and he  can bat real good. Oh, and he is 19 years ago-but I may have mentioned that already. Cheah!

Haseeb made is first-class debut for Lancanshire against Glamorgan in August 2015, opening the batting and scoring 28 in his first innings. He signed a 4 year contract for Lancashire ahead of the 2016 season. He scored over 1,000 runs in that season, breaking Mike Atherton’s record as the youngest Lancashire player to reach that landmark. In September 2016, Hameed was named in England’s Test squad for their tour to Bangladesh.

Haseeb is 19, as you already know and is only the 2nd teenager to make his debut for England since 1949. He is pretty amazing for such a young lad. His technique is good and he remains side on, he has good footwork and has excellent judgement. In short, he is a terribly good cricket player…at 19 years old. Yes, yes he is.

Cheers

    I confess I’ve never understood cricket but he sounds like a great athlete with many more years to play…

      Right? I understand quantum physics better than cricket. Lol. He is indeed a great athlete.

    You forgot to mention that his first Test match was at Rajkot, India, which was like a homecoming, because his relatives who all came to watch him, are living in Rajkot, I think he had to supply 50 tickets to them.

      Oh yes, I forgot. Thanks Dad. And thanks for reading my blog. Can I borrow £100? That would be great, thanks. 😉
