Do we have a slot for him? It would be a gamble to throw him into a four day game given that he has so little first class cricket under his belt.For those with access to Sky TV the BPL can be viewed on Channel 424, keep up to date with Punkett, Lyth and Rashid.
I don't see the logic in signing Rashid Khan when he has little experience in playing outside the subcontinent. Not to mention Yorkshire already have unrivalled domestic spinners in Rashid and Rafiq, Carver as back up plus Logan and Shutt if needs be.For those with access to Sky TV the BPL can be viewed on Channel 424, keep up to date with Punkett, Lyth and Rashid.

Presuming Adil Rashid does not get an IPL contract or get a test call up, he will be available for most of the County Championship season. Missing most of June and half of July for England's white ball internationals against Australia and India. Whenever Karl Carver does get a bowl, his record in red ball cricket is proven and needs encouraging further instead of signing a luxury player.
We've got batsmen and seam bowlers coming out of our ears. We desperately, DESPERATELY need a top spinner, to supplement Adil when he's available, to replace him when he's not. I would prefer an orthodox spinner, given how well Leach and Harmer did, for example, but I'm struggling to think of one good enough to make a difference.
The risk is we continue the habit of getting bowled out cheaply and don't give Rashid, or Rashid Khan or any other demon bowler you care to sign anything to bowl at.
Dave Morton ranking Rashid Khan as the World's premier spinner based on white ball performances alone. Must be a closet t20 fan afterall, good man.
Rashid would be fine for our our T20 side as long as we are prepared to play three spinners. Adil is one of the best short form spinners in the world and Rafiq did well last year - so in this form at least our spin departments looks OK.
Didn't watch much but quite enjoyed it.
I see Tim Bresnan has joined the ranks of Yorkshire players in the BPL.
