Haseeb Hameed, who hails from Bolton, is an exciting batsman who in the last third of the 2014 season began an outstanding run of form for Lancashire’s Second XI and England under 19s.
His scores and contribution in winning cricket matches added weight to the argument that at only 17 years old he is the outstanding batsman at under 19 level in the country. Successive scores of two 97s and a century for England u19s in defeating South Africa u19s in the first three ODIs of last summer being standout performances.
Hameed joined Lancashire’s Academy and Scholarship programme in 2012 and graduated with the award of a professional contract for 2015.
He made his breakthrough in the Lancashire First Team and made his debut for the Club against Glamorgan at Emirates Old Trafford. He then hit a six hour, match saving 91 for Lancashire against Surrey as the Red Rose confirmed promotion back to Division One of the County Championship.
