Warwickshire teen batsman Sam Hain became the youngest player for the club to reach a double century, reaching the landmark against Northamptonshire in the County Championship on Thursday.

Hain and fourth wicket partner Jonathan Trott put on 360 runs together, with the veteran batsman scoring 164 as he continued his comeback to the game, following his stress-related Ashes exit late last year.

Meanwhile, Hain, born in Hong Kong and raised in Australia, became the third youngest County player to record a double century, after Dominic Sibley and David Sales, at 19 years and 57 days.

Here are the highlights of day three against Northants, which show Trott's 150 and Hain's double ton, with the Steelbacks bowlers toiling for 98 overs against the pair at Edgbaston.
