Brilliant Hameed secures series

Haseeb Hameed continued his stunning form as England Under-19s took an unassailable 3-0 lead in their series against South Africa.

The hotly-tipped Lancashire man struck 97 in each of the opening two games, and went one better today when crunching 125.

His efforts, supported Tom Alsop's 57, steered England to a winning total of 295 for eight.

Will Rhodes and Karl Carver backed those performances up outstandingly by claiming three wickets apiece in the reply.

Janneman Malan and Marques Ackerman, who struck 52 and 67 respectively, were the best performers for the Proteas with the bat.

However, South Africa were dismissed for 256 to lose by 39 runs, meaning they are playing for pride over the remainder of the rubber.
