Tymal Mills claims that following another stellar performance in Bangladesh, Adil Rashid is one of the first names on England's team sheet when playing white ball cricket.
On Friday, England defeated Bangladesh comfortably by 132 runs to grab a commanding 2-0 lead in the three-game ODI series.
England bowled out the hosts for 194 after posting 326-7, with Sam Curran and Adil Rashid both claiming four victims.
Rashid, who had already taken two wickets in the first Adil Rashid ODI, now has 181 in the format, making him England's third all-time wicket-taker.
Adil Rashid will certainly play a pivotal part for England at the World Cup in India later this year, with Darren Gough and James Anderson as targets.
"He was brilliant once again and picked up where he left off in the first match," England seamer Mills remarked after the second ODI. He employed all three of his aliases, demonstrating why his name is at the top of the team's roster. Once again, 'Rashy' is delivering impressive results. By the second game, England had adapted considerably better. England improved greatly with the bat from the first game, and Bangladesh took a significant step back today.
England's bowling performance was sparked by Curran, who picked up three early wickets.
Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan put together a solid fourth-wicket stand to help Bangladesh recover.
However, the home team could not establish complete control of the match, and England's spin twins dominated the middle overs to halt any possibility of a thrilling run chase.
Adil Rashid got four wickets in the middle overs, including the crucial one of Shakib, who appeared to be cruising on 58 before he was dismissed by Moeen Ali in the 20th over.
He consistently intimidated the batters with his spinning fastball, and they never looked at ease.
The leg-spinner was instrumental in England's historic series win against Bangladesh, who had won their previous seven ODI series at home without losing a single game.
Now that the series is over, Jos Buttler may rest Adil Rashid and give Rehan Ahmed his first opportunity to play for England in one-day internationals.
After establishing himself as an integral part of the current England squad, Rashid was picked up by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL this season, giving him ample opportunity to hone his skills in preparation for the World Cup in India.
Adil Rashid’s debut in international cricket was in 2009 when he was selected to play four out of England's five matches in the World Twenty20.
In his first one-day international, which took place in Belfast, he took 1/11 while helping his team to a close victory over Ireland. The deceptive bowler did appear in consecutive ODIs against Australia, but his performance was erratic, to put it mildly.
England's unwillingness to deploy Adil Rashid as a premium spinner in the longer version of the game has significantly hampered his career. However, he is currently one of the better leg-spinners in World cricket.
Is Adil Rashid a good bowler?
Rashid's speciality is bowling leg breaks with his right arm. In both one-day internationals and Twenty20 Internationals, he holds the record for most wickets taken by a spin bowler for England. He played well in every format. This record-breaking performance makes him shine among other cricketers.
Why is Adil Rashid not playing against India?
Adil Rashid has been granted permission to make the Hajj to Mecca. Therefore, he will miss England's white-ball series against India.
Who bought Adil Rashid in IPL 2023?
Sunrisers Hyderabad acquired Adil Rashid in the 2023 Indian Premier League auction. To add the English spinner to its roster, the franchise forked over 2 crores of rupees. He is a great player and will surely perform well in his upcoming matches.
