About Adil Rashid


"I want to provide quality coaching, as well as a platform that allows young aspiring cricketers to succeed."

Adil Rashid

Full Name: Adil Usman Rashid Born:
February 17 1988, Bradford
Country: England
County: Yorkshire
Other teams: England Lions, England Under-19, Adelaide Strikers
Test debut: Pakistan v England, Abu Dhabi, Oct 13-17 2015
ODI debut: Ireland v England, Belfast, Aug 27 2009
T20 debut: England v Netherlands, Lord's, Jun 5 2009
Batting Style: Right-hand bat
Bowling Style: Leg-break

Adil Rashid is regarded as one of the most exciting all-rounder’s the country has to offer. A leg-spinner and fine lower-order batsman, he became the first Yorkshire-born cricketer of Pakistani origin to play for the county in 2006.

After making a significant impression, he then worked his way through the England Under-19s, Lions and Performance Programmes before making his senior debut at the 2009 World Twenty20.

Since then he has established himself as Yorkshire’s number one spinner and a regular in the England ODI and T20 side, while also providing crucial runs down the order. He took 81 wickets and scored over 800 runs in the summer as Yorkshire won the LV= County Championship and he earned himself a place on the England Performance Programme tour to Sri Lanka.

After a good summer on his England return in limited-over’s cricket, Rashid made his Test debut against Pakistan in the UAE and made an immediate impact with a five-wicket haul as Alastair Cook's men threatened an unlikely victory. He followed that up with a maiden half-century which almost secured England a draw in the second Test.

Adil Rashid, the player who above all symbolized Yorkshire's growing success in fostering strong relationships in its minority ethnic communities, burst onto the scene with six wickets against Warwickshire on his first-class debut in 2006 at Scarborough. Rashid's performances for England Under-19s also caught the eye with a century and an eight-wicket haul during the second Test against India
