Hameed named in England Test Squad for India

Lancashire batsman Haseeb Hameed has been named in England Test Squad for the India tour next month.

James Anderson has been omitted while he recovers from a shoulder injury although it is hoped he will still play some part in the series.

England coach Trevor Bayliss said after the First Test finished on James Anderson, "The medical staff are very pleased with how he has come on in the last week or so. He has had more scans and is looking good. They haven't given any indication of when he might be available, but definitely out for the first Test in India."

England will play five Tests in India, starting in Rajkot on 9 November, hoping to emulate the famous series win in 2012.

England began their winter in the subcontinent with a narrow 22-run win over Bangladesh in Chittagong.

Alastair Cook (Captain, Essex)
