Former England captain, Michael Vaughan has expressed his shock over the fact that not only Adil Rashid isn’t a demanded player in the Indian Premier League(IPL), but also that the leg-spinner hasn’t even played a single game in the cash-rich league yet.
Vaughan’s comments came on Sunday when England defeated South Africa in Paarl and won another T20 series. They have now gone eight consecutive T20 series without losing ( 7 wins, 1 drawn).
Adil Rashid picked important wickets of middle-order batters, Reeza Hendricks and Faf du Plessis and finished his spell with figures of 2/23.
Rashid should be paid huge in the IPL: Michael Vaughan
Michael Vaughan took to Twitter to praise Adil Rashid. He did so by pointing out that Rashid played in the IPL. In fact, the 46-year-old believes that any of the IPL franchise should pay the leg-spinner big bucks.
Michael Vaughan wrote on Twitter, “How come Adil Rashid isn’t one of the highest paid picks for the #IPL ?? Surely he should be #OnOn #SAvENG”
This year, RCB roped in Adam Zampa as a replacement for Kane Richardson, which would make people wonder why the number 7 T20I bowler in the world hasn’t featured in the IPL yet?
Adil Rashid is a major part of the England white-ball team and has been an instrumental factor in their success in the last five years. He has been a consistent wicket-taker for the Three Lions and played all the games in the World Cup last year. In the tournament, the leggie picked 11 wickets at an economy of 5.72
In 11 T20Is this year, he has 12 scalps at an economy of 7.79. Rashid has a penchant for breaking partnerships and choking the opposition in the middle-overs.
The 32–year-old will have a vital role to play in the future for Eoin Morgan’s side as two out of the next three ICC World Cups are scheduled to take place in India. England will face Quinton de Kock’s team in the third T20I in a dead rubber on Tuesday.
