Hameed enjoying Notts atmosphere

Nottinghamshire batsman Haseeb Hameed believes the environment at the club is helping young players perform well in different formats of county cricket.

Notts are 4/1 to successfully defend their T20 Blast title this summer and 13/2 to win the One-Day Cup after beating Warwickshire by 86 runs in their opening game of the 50-over tournament.

Hameed scored 103 off 92 balls at Edgbaston to power Notts to a total of 323 and their bowlers defended that target comfortably, despite a century from Warwickshire youngster Rob Yates.

Liam Patterson-White, making his one-day debut for the county, took three wickets and 22-year-old all-rounder Lyndon James claimed 5-48 as Notts demonstrated the strength in depth of their squad.

Hameed, who made his Test debut for England in India as a 19-year-old in 2016, moved to Trent Bridge from Lancashire in 2020 and credits Notts head coach Peter Moores with helping him revitalise his career.

The right-hander has scored 642 runs in nine County Championship matches this summer and he continued his fine form in the One-Day Cup, scoring his first List A century on Sunday.

Notts' next One-Day Cup assignment is against Surrey in Guildford on Tuesday.

After the win at Edgbaston, Hameed told his county's official website: "The environment the coaches have created allows guys to come in and thrive and show what they can do straight away."

Asked about the switch from red-ball to white-ball cricket, Hameed said: "To be able to adapt and change is very pleasing. Pete and I have spoken about adapting my game to different formats, and to be able to go out there and put it into practice is great."
