Phil doesn't sound like a Yorkshire or England fan in my view, the tone of his posts give me that impression.

don't think many yorkshire fans will miss him next season the fact is he takes wickets in white ball cricket when players are swinging the bat but cant take wickets in the top order of county cricket, come on carver .

He is still 3rd top wicket taker in our first class team. 32 wickets in 10 games. And the valuable knack of bowling out the tail. Still a very valuable player.

Agree with that . But the fact is he chose to opted out of playing in what most fans would consider was our most important game of the season and perhaps most important of the past few seasons .

The reasons given frankly did not add up and this has left many people , myself included , feeling very let down by his apparent lack of commitment to the side , its fans , and other members of the team .

We have two doubts for next season. Andrew Gale is still deciding on his future, as he himself has indicated and Adil Rashid seems more committed to England than Yorkshire and there are a lot of 1 day matches for England next season. It could be with Adil, that he will be either away with England or resting himself for future matches with England.

We COULD, if Gary is away with England as well, be looking for a new number 3, 4, 5 & 6 on this years team.

Interesting that you're commenting here how you feel let down by Rashid for asking to be rested for a game yet, on another thread running at the same time you're advocating the return of Kane Williamson, who also requested to be rested from a game last season, with no mention you don't feel let down by him?

Change it around . Don't you feel at all let down by what he did ?

It was not "a game" it was the Championship decider . The last game of the season . The chance to help his team win a hat-trick of titles .

I am not sure how I feel when I next see Adil Rashid play for Yorkshire.
Would still want him to play well, still playing for Yorkshire after all.
Would be interesting to be a fly on the wall and see how the other players treat him now.

I think that will be the crux of the matter Matt, how he is received back in the dressing room. I imagine he has a lot of bridges to build and am not sure if he has the personality or approach to tackle that head on, based on how fragile we are told he can be when not trusted by his peers.

The air needs clearing with this one. it seems there is more to the story than was dribbled out at the time.If it was just poor PR management then admit it and move forward to a solution rather than let rumour and supposition rule the agenda.

Whatever it was let's have it cleared up.It would be a shame to lose Rashid because of poor PR but, if it was as we were told then he has to deal with the situation or face being ostracised by his peers.
