Injured Hameed heads back to England, replaced by Keaton Jennings

Young opener Haseeb Hameed’s tour is over as the youngster, who sustained a fractured hand during the first innings of the Mohali Test, is going back home.

Injured Hameed came out to bat today and showed his steely temperament with a gritty 59, which forced India to chase a target of 103 runs.

Skipper Alastair Cook said after England lost the third Test,

 



He has got a broken hand, needs a plate within to fix it. Yes, it’s obviously unlucky for a youngster, who impressed us all with his technique and talent and obviously now when he’s playing for England, he will do anything to get out there.



England are set to replace Haseeb Hameed with Durham opener Keaton Jennings for India series.
