Rashid's decision to pull out of Yorkshire's most important game of this season has made him 3rd choice spinner in my eyes. I mean, who in their right mind would decline the opportunity to win silverware?Agree with you TU, anybody who puts on a yorkshire shirt should be fully committed to the cause.
I am sure gale and leaning try their best for the county and are a damn site better at it than i would be.
As for Rashid, no excuses whatsoever. He should be heavily fined and not play for yorkshire again.
Anyone know when his contract is up?
As for a heavy international schedule lined up, I'm not having that as an excuse. 7 Tests and 3 ODIs between October and Christmas, roughly two weeks rest before completing the India limited overs series. Another fortnight off before a 3 match ODI series against the West Indies. Then a whole month off before the 2017 season begins. A manageable schedule compared to some Southern Hemisphere sides who are playing non-stop between October and March.
