England vs India: Haseeb Hameed and the brutal agony of the golden duck. Something was baffling, with both William Whitty and Sanath Jayasuriya trying to get over each other – they were both arrested. How they score once and get fired from the only deliveries they face is a mystery.

Some are infamous. In 1981, Ian Botham’s second inning against Australia at Lord’s was not played in pairs and was one of his last performances as England captain. What followed at Headingley was inscribed in cricket folklore.

The rest are just small dots. In the history of the game, England’s Alan Wells made his first dunk against the West Indies in 1995 and has never played Test cricket again.

However, no one can compare Haseeb Hameed in his feelings of heartbreak, devastation and loneliness.

This should be his glorious return. big redemption Confirmation that anything is possible with perseverance, faith, and hard work.

Hameed spent 1,717 days during his British appearance. Like homeless youth hardly leaving school ‘boycott’, a 19-year-old batsman like a three-tested veteran in India in 2016.

already? Nothing. Five years roaming the wilderness that started with a broken hand and fell into a lack of style that threatened his career.

Some people never wavered in the belief that he would return. Although he went all season averaging only nine in first class cricket.

The Bolton boy had to stand up to get back on track. A move from Lancashire to Nottinghamshire not only saw a return to running. But those in the know speak of greater strength and maturity. while the British recall felt inevitable.

If the humiliation of not having your name is not enough There is a number next to it. Write down history that you can’t survive a single vile childbirth.

Some batsman is like a slow death. along with the feeling of sorrow that followed

The Golden Duck is an instant execution. There wasn’t even a chance to say the last word from the gallows as the firing squad pulled the trigger before your throat was in the snare.

Inning’s anticipation is to wonder where the journey will take you – shots, sweat, verbal competition with a bowler – but the Golden Duck is the most explosive dream. It’s like ending an adventure before you pack a bag of ammo.

In fact, the Golden Duck may take less time than the upholstery.

Who hasn’t been waiting for a bat full of optimism? For Hamed, the wait lasted nearly five years.

He came out. The crowd of gods cheered at the crease. Swinging the bat as he walked towards the crease. Wearing a chest shield that looks like someone stuffed a car door into his shirt.

He checked the guards three times. Scratch the ground to make sure he’s in the right place.

What followed was inexplicable. A straight ball from Mohammed Siraj was missed in terms of cricket by light years. Tree stump in the middle and outside the castle. Golden Duck. After all.
