“Test return has not crossed my mind”, says the 33-year-old leg spinner Adil Rashid
The Yorkshire leg-spinner Adil Rashid, in early 2018, had opted to focus on just white-ball cricket but made a comeback in the next summer against India because of his mind-blowing performance in the ODI series that lead up to the 5 match rubber against Virat Kohli’s team.
In an interview, Rashid has said that currently he’s enjoying playing white-ball cricket and has no intention to return to Test cricket anytime soon. Rashid, due to his shoulder injury hasn’t played test cricket since January 2019.
After his comeback at the Test team in 2018, the 33-year-old spinner went on to be seen on 9 Test matches in a row. In the following year, Rashid signed a one-year-white-ball-cricket-only contract with Yorkshire, where he didn’t play any First-Class match since 2017.
“I need to know for myself if I can play Test match again,” said Rashid.
The T20I World Cup, taking place in October and November will be followed by the Ashes Down Under and Rashid will be one of the vital cogs for England.
‘It’s a long way away, a lot can happen. You don’t know where people will be, their form or injuries. How my mindset works, I don’t think about that kind of stuff. I think we have to see what happens loser the time” said the leg spinner after being asked about a potential comeback for the Ashes.
Adil Rashid has played around 19 Tests in which he has claimed about 60 wickets.
