NOTTINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM: Teenage opener Haseeb Hameed was included in the England Test squad announced Friday for the tour of Bangladesh.

The 19-year-old Lancashire star was included after a successful season for the Red Rose county and following the decision of current England opener Alex Hales to rule himself out of the tour on security grounds.
