Adil Rashid seemed to be the spin option England wanted when Swann ended his career. While Adil Rashid has already established himself as a regular in white-ball games, the googly specialist has yet to prove himself in the Test team.

ODI Career

Adil Rashid played his first ODI match against Ireland in August 2009. He took 1/16 to help England edge past the Irish. In the first ODI of a series against Australia, Rashid bowled economically (0/37) and scored runs (31 not out) to ensure another England win. An injury to Swann gave Rashid a chance to play in the second ODI held in South Africa in 2009 – 2010, only to be dropped after a poor 0/27 in three overs.

An England Regular

Adil returned to ODI cricket in 2015 when he replaced Moeen Ali for the series against New Zealand. In the first match, he got his first ODI half-century (69) in a partnership of 177 runs with Jos Buttler and added a bowling performance of 4/55, including the prize wicket of Kane Williamson. In the following five-match series against Australia, Rashid took seven wickets, including 4/59 and 2/41 in the first and third matches. His match-winning three-wicket haul against Pakistan in 2015 helped England score a 3-1 series win. Rashid was among the wickets in the 2015 – 2016 series with South Africa that England lost 3-2. With six wickets in five matches against the visiting Sri Lankans followed by eight wickets in four matches against the visiting Pakistanis, Rashid became a regular in the England side. On England’s tour of Bangladesh, he grabbed 10 wickets in three matches including the best performance of 4/43 to help England record a four-wicket win in a series they won 2–1.  In the summer of 2017, England played two ODIs against Ireland ahead of the Champions League. Rashid played a key role in both matches, registering a match-winning 5/27 in the first and a 25-ball innings of 35 with the bat in the second. In 2018, Adil picked up 12 wickets in a 5-match series against Australia to cement his place in the England side. Ahead of the World Cup in 2019, England toured the West Indies. With figures of 3/74, and 5/85, Rashid was key to England’s wins in both matches. In the World Cup 2019, Rashid’s only bowling performance of significance came against Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, England lost the match despite Rashid’s 2/42. In 100 ODIs, Rashid has taken 146 wickets at an average of 31.49, with two fifers, including the best bowling figures of 5/27. He has also scored 590 runs at 18.43.

T20I Career

Adil Rashid played his first T20I against the Netherlands at Lords. He took 1/36 in a thriller that the visitors won off the last ball. Ignored by selectors in the period from 2010 to 2014, Rashid returned to T20I cricket in June 2015 to play against the visiting New Zealand team. His 1/33 came in a winning cause after the Kiwis had got bowled out for 135 in a chase of 192. After that, regular wickets led to Rashid becoming a constant in the England side. One of his best performances came in September 2017 at Chester-le-street against the West Indies when Rashid grabbed 3/25 in vain as the visitors went on to win the match. In October 2018 in Colombo during England’s tour of Sri Lanka, Rashid’s 3/11 helped bowl Sri Lanka out for 157 as they failed to chase the target of 188 that England had set. In his last T20I match on England’s tour of South Africa, though Rashid was a trifle expensive with figures of 1/42, the England batsmen chased down the target of 223 with relative ease on a batting track. In 43 T20Is, Rashid has taken 41 wickets at an average of 26.80 with the best bowling figures of 3/11.

Test Career

Rashid took 5/12 in his first Test match played in October 2015 against Pakistan in the UAE and ended up taking eight wickets in the three-match series. That was followed by a tour of Bangladesh on which he took 7 wickets in two matches, with the best bowling figures of 4/52. Then came Rashid’s most productive series in India where he captured 23 wickets in five matches but could not prevent England from losing the series. However, Rashid’s 10 wickets in five matches during India’s next tour of England in August 2018 saw England emerge victorious in the series. Two months later, in November 2018, Rashid had an impressive series against the visiting Sri Lankans when he grabbed 12 wickets in three matches to help England achieve a series win. Unfortunately for Rashid, he found favour with the selectors on only one other occasion when he played one match on England’s tour of the West Indies in January 2019. The hosts won the game in which Rashid went wicketless. In 19 Test matches, Adil Rashid has taken 60 wickets at an average of 39.83, including his best bowling figures of 5/49. He has also scored 540 runs at 19.28, with the highest score of 61.
