HASEEB Hameed can get his career back on track at Nottinghamshire according to his new coach Peter Moores.

The pair worked together at Lancashire and will be in tandem again at Trent Bridge after the Bolton batsman ended his long association with the Red Rose last summer.

From being fast-tracked into the England side as a teenager four years ago, Hameed’s form nosedived to the extent that the former Bolton School pupil spent much of 2019 playing for the in Lancashire’s second XI.

While Hameed is currently furloughed along with the rest of Nottinghamshire’s playing staff because of the global coronavirus pandemic, Moores thinks a change of scenery could be just what the 23-year-old one-time Farnworth Social Circle man needs.

Former England head coach Moores said: “Has is one of those players who wants to master the craft of batting, he loves batting, and I think and hope we’re a good fit for him because I’m passionate about helping him do that.

“He’s been through the classic journey for me: started like a train, got into the England side and then went into what is probably whatever you want to call ‘the search’ when you’re looking for more even though sometimes you don’t need it.

“Now, hopefully he’s got to that point in his career where he’s been through that for two or three years, he can get it simple in his own head and come out and do what he does really well.

“He’s got a great focus of watching the ball, he plays the ball late and if he does that, he’s got this nice style of accumulating runs which he showed when he played for England.

“Keeping things simple will be the key for Has. For him to get back up there would be really exciting.”
