Adil Rashid Facts
- In 2006, Adil had become just the 3rd Yorkshire-born player of Asian heritage to play senior-level cricket for Yorkshire County Cricket Club. He was the first player of Pakistani origin to do so.
- He made his county championship (first-class) debut later that year, at the age of just 18. In that match, against Warwickshire County Cricket Club, he had produced a magnificent haul of 6/67 in the 2nd innings to demolish Warwickshire‘s middle order and win the match for Yorkshire.
- In a 2007 county championship match, against Surrey County Cricket Club, he had scored 86 runs in the first innings and was involved in a partnership of 190 runs with Jacques Rudolph for the 6th wicket. This had set a new partnership record for the 6th wicket for Yorkshire against Surrey, beating the previous record that had stood since 1902.
- In June 2015, in an ODI match against New Zealand, he and Jos Buttler were involved in a massive partnership of 177 runs for the 7th wicket. This had set a new partnership record in ODIs, by a fair margin, for that wicket. For good measure, he had also picked up 4 wickets in the 2nd innings of the match.
- In the 2nd match of England’s 2018 test series against India, he had become the first English cricketer for 13 years to have completed a Test match without batting, bowling, or taking a catch. This had happened because the pitch and overhead conditions in the match had favored seam bowlers excessively, rendering spin bowlers on either side utterly useless.
- In July 2020, he had become the first English spin bowler ever to take 150 wickets in ODIs.
