England leg-spinner Adil Rashid says he would consider playing red-ball at the end of summer.
The England lion has played the World Cup for England but not played test cricket since January 2019.
“Once September comes, if my shoulder is 100% and I feel I can get back into red-ball,” he said.
Adil firstly has to focus on white-ball cricket at the start of 2018. He wanted to receive a controversial call-up to play England’s Test series against India.
“If I don’t make that decision of playing red-ball and just stuck to white-ball then there’s no Ashes for me.”says Adil Rashid.
“But if I do make that decision and I play red-ball, then that’s something that I could look towards. It’s something that I’ve got to earn.”, he says.
Rashid went on to play in nine consecutive England Tests, crowning with the tour of West Indies. The England spinner had a shoulder injury during the World Cup and played in every match of England’s victorious campaign. He eventually missed the remainder of the home season and returned to action on winter tours of England.
Adil Rashid point of view
England’s spin bowling will become extraordinary in the tour of India if Adil Rashid is available for them in early 2021. Rashid also discussed the possibility of making an appearance in the next Ashes tour. Adil Rashid has formed a successful partnership with his fellow spinner Moeen Ali.
England’s off-spinner Moeen Ali was not ready to play the Test cricket after being dropped from the Ashes last summer, saying he left burned out.
Moeen Ali said he now feels ready to make a comeback into the hardest form of cricket.
Moeen Ali has proved himself that he is a game-changer and also a match-winner for England. He has taken 181 wickets in 60 matches for England.
Adil Rashid believes England would prefer Moeen Ali for an immediate recall for Test cricket in the home.
