    Well, we have found the long-looked for partner for Alastair Cook.

    I'd been hoping to keep him playing for Lancashire for another year or two. Won't happen now.

    I still think he should play for a couple of years in domestic. Imo he is too young for a batsman in international cricket.

    Except Compton didn't have many shots and was far too defensive at times.

    Although this chap is known for a defensive game he seems to be have a good array of shots.

    Watching him properly for the first time and I'm very impressed.

    Looks so calm at the crease as if he is playing with his mates in the park.

    Wristy, technically looks pretty good and will get better.

    It's excellent for him that he's opening with Cook.

    Regarding who he bats like, a bit of Azharrudin, Yousuf and Zaheer Abbas about him.

    He looked really wonderful, very composed and can be a real asset for England in the long term. He has already played an amazing innings against quality spin in difficult conditions. He's miles better than Babar Azam that's for sure. To have cook by his side can only improve his game.

    very impressed by his footwork against spin. he is comfort able on both the front foot and go back in the crease as well. The initial signs look very promising. But this tour will get tougher next game will be on a rank turner in Vizag so that will bring a different challenge for him. Great work by the lad so far.

    The best thing about his batting was the ease with which he tamed the cunning off-spin of ashwin, the mercilessly tight line of jadeja and the mysterious leg spin of mishra on indian wicket.

    Babar Azam is already making quite a few indians insecure and jelous. Love it and i hope he keeps scoring tons so we see some more jelous and burnt indian fans.

    Not jealous at all, I wish him all the best, just that both are reasonably young and have a bright future. Watching Hameed today gave me the impression that he is far ahead of others, so composed so mature, mind you Babar Azam is 2 years older than Hameed.

    I see thats why you mentioned babar azam out of all the names you could have came up with and to say better then him by miles highlights your clean heart without an inch of jelousy. Haseeb hammed will make an exclellent test player but don't see him becoming a good odi and t20 player at the moment, though he is pretty young to prove me wrong. While babar may not be a better test players then him, but is overall suited for all formats unlike haseeb hammed at the moment.

    I would even like to bring in contention Sami Aslam, yes technically not as solid, but he knows how to grind it out.

    Positives:

    Great footwork vs Spin
    Cuts very well and plays the ball late
    Knows where his off stump is
    Confidence of a senior member

    Negatives:

    19 years old (depending on how you view this) and inexperienced
    Fundamentals are there but we don't know how he'll do in a variety of Test Scenarios despite the good start

    The Middle Ground:

    Patience and Investment

    Interesting flashback:

    A 21 year old Joe Root made a half century on debut 4 years ago for England in India

    Looks like a fantastic prospect.

    Azharuddin is the best comparison in my eyes. He has a considerable amount of similarities to the Indian great.

    Must be at least decent if he can get a half century on debut aged 19 on a tough away series against a bowling attack that is world class in home conditions.

    Haven't watched a ball yet of the ongoing Test though, but the above is what I have surmised.


    Politics trumps intelligence (pun intended).

    I agree with the bold part of your post.

    The reason i mentioned azam is because both of them are of comparable age and have played 1 test match in conditions that are relatively similar and both are the youngest sensations in world cricket no other team has unleashed young batsmen in recent times who have done well.

    Sami aslam is also another quality player his contemporary de kock has taken a march over him because of some pathetic decision by the PCB, he deserves to be in the ODI set up.

    England are so lucky. Each time they tour India, they find a (potentially ATG) top order batsman.

    It was Cook, then Root and now Haseeb.

    They should tour India every 2 years

    England selectors are generally risk-averse so I was surprised when Hameed was called up given his inexperience. They could have easily gone back to a more experienced option like Robson who had a decent county season. But this may turn out to be an inspired selection.

    I was also surprised they didn't start Hameed in Bangladesh to prepare him for India- feels like we wasted two Tests with Ballance.

    Hameed's rise is impressive. For a 19 year old to come into Division 1 of County cricket and average nearly 50 in your first 20 FC matches is quite remarkable.

    Has a solid defence, good footwork and all the basic fundamentals - shows you how good coaching is at grassroots level in England. Let's see how he does on livelier wickets.

    Rajkot Test: Haseeb Hameed's dad a proud man after son's maiden half century

    Rajkot: Nineteen-year-old opener Haseeb Hameed had a special audience here on Saturday when he scored his maiden half century for England in his debut Test.

    His family — father Ismail, mother Najma, elder brother Nuaman, younger brother Safwaan, sisters Ateqah and Subhana — watched as the most famous member of their family was applauded when he steered India leg-spinner Amit Mishra for a boundary.

    Hameed ended the day unbeaten on 62 with captain Alastair Cook at the other end. His family found it difficult walking to their car as spectators broke security barriers to wish them for their boy's success.

    Hameed's Test debut against India here is an even bigger occasion for the family as his ancestors come from the village Umraj in Bharuch some 373 km away from Rajkot. The family is in India for Nuaman's nikaah with Nadiya, which was conducted in Bharuch last week. But Haseeb was not part of it because he had to be with the team ahead of a crucial series.

    "Haseeb couldn't attend it as he was with the team. But it is ok, we all understand," said his elder sister Ateqah. "I am very happy, I couldn't have asked for more," is all that his father could say, still basking in the glory of his son's achievement.

    "But, (pointing at Safwaan) he was a much better cricketer than Haseeb. He was to go to Australia but had to stop playing because of injuries," added the father who used to make Nuaman and Safwaan play cricket in the living room with a plastic ball and bat. Like all Asian expats, they loved cricket and cricketers. Former Pakistan cricketer Salim Malik would often drop in at their residence in Bolton.

    "He is calm, very level-headed and a very good observer," said Safwaan of his brother. This is one quality that has been praised by England captain Alastair Cook.

    Teammate Adil Rashid said: "He has got a good head. He is very clever and works hard in the nets. He has also got a very good sense of humour and I think he is fitting well in the dressing room. He is a great talent and he showed that today. Hopefully, he carries on tomorrow and makes a big one here."

    Trevor Bayliss praises Haseeb Hameed after England debut

    Haseeb Hameed is already part of the England furniture after just one Test match, according to coach Trevor Bayliss who has compared the teenager to Sri Lanka great Kumar Sangakkara.

    The 19-year-old made his debut in the drawn first Test against India in Rajkot and was just 18 runs short of becoming England's youngest centurion.

    His performance alongside Alastair Cook at the top of the order drew praise from the England captain and Sky Sports' Nasser Hussain, among others.

    And even the tourists' measured coach is willing to concede England may have unearthed "a very, very good player".

    "Without wanting to put too much pressure on him, the signs are good," Bayliss said. "For one so young, 19, his composure is very good.

    "He knows how his game works - something that players years in advance of him would like to have, I think.

    "He's been with the squad for about six weeks, but it feels like he's been here for two or three years - he's got that type of a personality.

    "He's one of those batters, a little bit like a Kumar Sangakkara, who just loves batting - whether it's in the nets, having throwdowns or with a tennis ball in the changing room. He just loves to have a bat in his hand."

    Alastair Cook's generous words of praise for Haseeb Hameed

    At the end of the Rajkot Test, England’s most experienced Test batsman and captain Alastair Cook made a remarkable statement. Speaking of his opening partner, the debutant Haseeb Hameed, he said, “He was pushing me close to retirement when we walked off yesterday: a 19-year-old not only out-batted me but scored quicker than me and made it look easier than me.”

    Captains talking up promising youngsters is not unusual in sport, it is part of the job description. But such generosity of spirit is rare; Cook is clearly a man secure in his own skin. For an all-time great from his country to pay such a lavish tribute to a boy playing his first Test says as much about Hameed as about Cook himself.

    By scoring his 30th century, Cook overtook Don Bradman; by drawing the Test, he brought his team on a par with the No. 1 side in the discussions that followed; England’s defeat in Bangladesh will not be forgotten, but the scars are healing rapidly; after five days of tough, unrelenting competition, Cook gave his team cause for hope. And yet, he found the time (and the words) to celebrate the arrival of Hameed. The last England batsman who evoked such expectations was Joe Root, and before that, it was Cook himself, both in India.

    Cook, the only England player with over 10,000 Test runs, is just 31 years old. There is a suggestion of baton-passing in his praise of Hameed, even if the captain is not abdicating just yet. There are promises to keep and miles to go. There is the matter of some of Sachin Tendulkar’s records, for one.

    Greatness recognising greatness
    When a young Len Hutton was coming through the system in Yorkshire, Herbert Sutcliffe, the established opening batsman said, “I am only setting up these records for Hutton to break them.” The Cook-Hameed parallel is too obvious to deserve comment.

    When the great Australian batsman Victor Trumper was 19, Ranji, who was touring Australia then, remarked after seeing him play for New South Wales that “he will be a very great batsman at no very distant date”. Trumper’s scores in that match were 5 and 0. It was greatness recognising greatness.

    India’s two best batsmen in the 1970s and 80s were Sunil Gavaskar and his brother-in-law Gundappa Vishwanath. When Sachin Tendulkar was 14, Dilip Vengsarkar told me that the teenager had the defence of one and the strokes of the other and would finish as a combination of the two. Vengsarkar was not a man to exaggerate, but I thought he had just begun to then.

    Cook’s praise is, equally, the lament of the ageing master. The painter who sees a younger man do easily what took him a lifetime to learn, the novelist who watches the world pay obeisance to a younger writer for his wit and control: the same things he was being lauded for a couple of generations earlier, the musician who needs to practise that bit harder to remain at the top. It is the cycle of life, a cycle that turns faster in sport than in any other sphere.

    Yet it is a cycle difficult to come to terms with. Former players are fond of saying how they played for the joy of the game rather than for the money. Many are convinced things were better in their time, the fast bowlers bowled faster, the spinners were craftier and the batsmen were sounder. When these same players were young, they were up against an earlier generation saying the same things about their game. And so on backwards in time.

    Cook’s maturity — of a piece with declaring at Rajkot only after eliminating the chances of a defeat — and his display of unselfishness and magnanimity are lessons that are as important to the modern cricketer as his gritty batsmanship.

    Much to do
    Hameed, who looks startlingly like a younger version of the British actor Alan Cumming, has even more miles to go. In Australia, there was a hex on anyone being compared to Don Bradman. Ian Craig, Norman O’Neill, Doug Walters were all thus compared, but fell short of greatness.

    There is no evidence of a similar curse on any England batsman being compared to Geoff Boycott. Hameed’s father and early coach Ismail, who played in the Bolton league was called “Boycott” for his technique. Hameed is thus “Baby Boycott”.

    Geoff Boycott himself has been generous. "I am flattered. It is a compliment to me that his father showed him videos of me and wanted him to watch my technique,” he has said.

    Hameed will have the international spotlight trained on him for many years now. He will excite, disappoint, inspire, frustrate, dishearten, motivate, thrill fans around the world as he both succeeds and fails at the crease.

    But it is doubtful if he will receive a more heart-warming response from a mate or a better compliment than the one from his captain at the end of his debut Test.

    Yeah I agree, going WAYYY OTT now.

    He just had a nice opening on an easy to bat track, that's it. Give him some time to prove his worth and it's too early to judge anything.

    Also there's a thread for Haseeb guy already.

    Showed more guts today than the vast majority of Pakistan's batsmen put together did in New Zealand.

    Wish we had some like him in the Pakistan team.

    Bitter sweet end to the tour for the kid. What a gutsy last performance on the tour with the bat though with a broken finger. Happy for him, rightly getting praised worldwide I'm sure the cricketing world has taken note of this gem. This was the tour a gem was unearthed to the international cricket scene to entertain us for years to come inshAllah, a special moment.

    One of my closest mates first cousin who I also have had the privilege growing up with. It's absolutely incredible watching someone you know well personally do as good as he is and showing the passion and determination along with it. His dad deserves a lot of credit. Used to take him to India every summer during the holidays as a child to improve his batting in every and any way possible. Still pinch myself at the fact that someone I know so well plays for the England cricket team!

    His family came to the last game as well didn't they?Cricketers in South Asia require a lot of sacrifice and push from their parents esp fathers but coming to India just to improve the batting is whole diff level of push.

    What a moment it must have been for his family to watch him boss around Indian spinners (esp Ash who he simply took apart) after the whole English team had crumbled to them....that too with a broken thumb.

    I saw a brilliant quote on the BBC sport website yesterday, where somebody suggessted that instead of Mark Ramprakash, England should hire Hameed's dad as the England batting coach. Not a bad shout, I reckon!

    The skills, talent and temperament he showed was outstanding. He farmed the strike against tail-enders. His defense was unbreakable. His shot selection was amazing. All at 19 years of age. He will go a long way

    Hameed has lost the plot. According to George Dobell it looks like he'll miss out on the England squad.

    In 15 first-class innings this season, he has failed to make a 50 and only reached 25 three times. He's been out for a duck four times.

    This is verrrrry Saddddd yaar :-(

    Thank you for updating me.


    Any information ? Some technical issues ? Or fame got to him ?

    Watched his one ot two interviews and He looked confident, committed but Hard Working Guy.


    Don't you think He should be persisted for one more Test Series ? Could be out of form yaar and can bounce back.

    Just going through a really bad patch of form. Hope England still back him and persist with him. Jennings hasn't really set the county circuit alight this season either.

    He is very young, has a great future ahead of him and will certainly bounce back from this. England, at the moment have too many good prospects to carry Hameed in this form. Jennings seems to be the most likely choice but Gubbins might also be considered. Sam Robson too has been playing well recently and might be a candidate. I think this is good for Hameed and he will come back stronger. He definitely has the potential to become a regular opener for England in the future.

    If Gubbins or Jennings score heavily than they will be the future. In English Cricket those Openers who play well in their first 10-15 tests than play consistently. They don't Chop & Change regularly like Pak for instance. Hence Trescothick, Strauss, Cook had a long career. Trescothick would have played atleast 130 Tests if He did not have health issues.
