Haseeb delighted with contract extension

Haseeb feels Trent Bridge is his home and was grateful for the opportunity to extend his stint. 

Furthermore, the elegant batter thinks his game has improved in the last three years with the club. 

"Although I have only been here a few years, Trent Bridge feels like home for me, and I am really grateful for the way I have been accepted and supported since arriving,

“My confidence has grown a great deal, and even in the last year I feel like my game has developed to the point where I played better than ever."

Haseeb made his Test debut at 19 against India at Rajkot in 2016. The top-order batter has been a part of 10 red-ball matches, wherein he has scored 439 runs, laced with four half-centuries.
