(Video) Haseeb Hameed strengthens his case for first-choice reserve opener with hundred in warm-up game

Haseeb Hameed got a good work-out in the unofficial rubber between India and County Select XI as he scored 112 of his team’s 220. The youngster has earned a recall to the national team courtesy of a jumbo tally of 642 runs from nine matches in the County Championship at an average of 45.85, which included two centuries and four half-centuries.

Brimming with confidence, the stoic right-hander could be drafted into the playing eleven in case either of the regular openers, Rory Burns and Dom Sibley, comes a cropper in the high-profile Tests against India.
