Vaughan blasts Rashid’s selection


LONDON: Michael Vaughan has labelled the controversial recall of Adil Rashid to England’s Test squad as ‘ridiculous’.

Yorkshire leg-spinner Rashid was included in a 13-man party announced by England national selector Ed Smith on Thursday for next week’s first Test against India at Edgbaston.

It was a controversial move given Rashid signed a contract with Yorkshire where he opted out of playing red-ball County Championship cricket this season.

Playing in the Championship has long been the traditional pathway to Test selection but Rashid has been recalled on the basis of his recent impressive one-day international performances against Australia and India.
