    England's drawn first Test with India in Rajkot may turn into an "I was there" moment, thanks to a great knock from Lancashire batsman Haseeb Hameed, cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew says.

    Haseeb Hameed

    He says:

    Quote Message: Just as we look back to Nagpur in 2006, when Alastair Cook made a century on his debut, so too we might reflect on this in some years to come as the first time we saw Haseeb Hameed.
    Quote Message: The 19-year-old, only the second teenager to make his debut for England since 1949, played beautifully for his 82 in the second innings.
    Quote Message: Some are saying we should not build him up too soon, or put too much pressure on his shoulders, but you cannot ignore the fact he can bat. He has enormous potential, and whether he succeeds or fails is now entirely up to him.
