MEET ADIL RASHID
Adil Usman Rashid (born 17 February 1988) is an English cricketer who plays for Yorkshire and England as a leg spinner.
Previously a player with England Under-19s, in December 2008, he was called into the full England Test squad, for the Test matches to be played in India.
He was then selected for the full tour of the West Indies. He made his Test debut on 13 October 2015 against Pakistan in the UAE.
As a leg spinner, Rashid received coaching from Terry Jenner as part of an ECB programme to encourage wrist-spinners.
Rashid is only the third Yorkshire-born Asian to play first-team cricket for Yorkshire, and the first of Pakistani origin. In 2006, ECB bowling coach David Parsons considered him the most talented young leg-spinner in the country.
