Must admit I've never seen him bowl so I should probably shut my mouth, but what I'm reading/seeing on scorecards thus far makes me inclined to agree with you (ie the Lions game). However he got some quality players out in that Roses game not too long ago so there may well be something there to work with, however my fear and what I believe is most likely to happen if he is any good is that they handle him poorly (ie the media hype gets too much and they pick him before he's 21, he gets shown up terribly and the selectors and he himself loose confidence in his bowling and he's all washed up by 25).Nah. Rashid is nothing any more special than any other of England's recent spinners. He's just the latest subject of that great British institution, media hype.
He was whacked by the Indians pretty badly in the tour game I think. He has at least a couple of years before he can look at national selection, if at all. A long way to go right now really.Adil Rashid looks to be englands next Star spinner, but i don't really know what to think of him. He does have a very good temperment and does have good control but i don't think he's as good as people put him down to be.
