Ashes hopeful Hameed fractures finger

Ashes hopeful Hameed fractures finger”

Hameed sustained the injury to his right hand while batting in Lancashire's Specsavers County Championship defeat to Middlesex at Lord's, with his county later confirming the break on Twitter.

A righthanded top-order batsman who can bat all day and suck the life out of bowlers: England desperately need one for this winter's Ashes, but it will not be Lancashire's Haseeb Hameed.

Hameed played three Tests during the defeat in India a year ago, but his tour was cut short when he broke a finger in his left hand during the third Test.

He has yet to add to the three Test caps he won in India following a poor start to the domestic county season.

Both Hameed and Roland-Jones have been tipped for inclusion in England's squad for the winter trip to Australia.

He was left unbeaten as Steven Finn, himself on the fringes of the England selection picture, took 8-79 to bowl Middlesex to a 36-run win which gives their top-flight survival hopes a huge boost. We stuck to our plans and that paid dividends.

"It was a big game for the club".

"It was about time I did something for the boys this season".

"We came here still looking for second spot, we can't win it but we still want to be second-best and we never like losing games".

England's selectors now face an anxious wait to discover the extent of Hameed's injury, with the Ashes squad due to be announced next week.
