Hello faithful. I’m back.
I hope Duncan Fletcher was sitting down today when he read of Adil Rashid’s exploits with bat and ball, in the second Test between England and India Under-19s.
Albeit fresh-faced, he epitomises what Fletcher seeks in his players. He is close to Fletcher’s summit of expectation, that most mouth-watering of prospects: a legspinning allrounder. Clearly it’s far, far too early to be talking of his future England prospects, but at the very least he is someone to keep an eye on.
