In form: Haseeb Hameed

Haseeb Hameed showed signs that he’s back in form with an unbeaten half-century for Lancashire in their 225-run victory against the ECB Blues in Dubai on Tuesday.

The 21-year-old scored 85 before retiring as The Red Rose posted an imposing 395-4 in their 50-overs at the ICC Academy. In his 82 deliveries, he hit seven boundaries and one six before giving way for other batsmen at the crease.

After Steven Croft (95) and Jordan Clarke (117no) impressed with the bat, Hameed took a catch as the ECB Blues were restricted to 170-9, falling to a 225-run defeat.

His knock was his highest since his 62-run innings against Somerset in September and Lancashire coaching staff will be hoping this could be just the start from the opening batsman.

After a promising 2016 season, Hameed endured a frustrating 2017, with one first-class half-century up until September. He then scored 88 against Essex as well as 62 against Somerset before a broken finger injury ended his campaign.

The batsman, who made his Test debut in 2016 against India, will be hoping to add to his international caps when England host Pakistan and England this summer.
