Andrew Gale has hailed Adil Rashid’s capabilities with the white ball after his return to Yorkshire colours at the weekend.
But the county coach admits he can’t help but be frustrated at Rashid’s missed opportunity with the red one.
Leg-spinner Rashid, now specialising as a limited overs cricketer, has hit the ground running for the Vikings at the start of their Royal London One-Day Cup campaign.
The England star took four wickets in Friday’s comprehensive win over Durham before going wicketless, but causing problems, in yesterday’s (Sunday) home defeat against Warwickshire.
Prior to Friday’s appearance, aside from some second XI cricket, 30-year-old Rashid had not played since March 10 during England’s one-day international series in New Zealand.
