Haseeb Hameed is one of few English players to have impressed one and all with his impressive skills in the tour to India. Hameed, who made his debut against India in the Rajkot test match is just 19 years of age and has made 219 runs in three test matches. Despite a very good start to his test career, Hameed has left India because of injury he sustained in the last test match in Mohali.
Hameed, whose parents emigrated from Gujarat to England in search of better opportunities, tweeted this before stepping on the plane to England.
Disappointing to leave the tour in this fashion but it's been another incredible experience. Thank you to both sets of fans for the support.— Haseeb Hameed (@HaseebHameed97) December 2, 2016
Will be watching with great interest knowing the lads will be giving it their all to level this series. See you all soon! ????— Haseeb Hameed (@HaseebHameed97) December 2, 2016
India has been a happy hunting ground for various debutants before including Root, Clarke, Cook and the recent young find Hameed. With two test matches still to be played, the England team will find itself with a tough task at Mumbai since one of the most solid defensive players just boarded a plane back to London!
