What did Rashid say?

Rashid told ESPN Cricinfo, I was looking for the right time to go for Haj, but it became difficult due to the busy schedule. I spoke to the ECB and Yorkshire about it and they were very happy. He encouraged me and gave approval immediately. Now I will spend some time with my wife in Mecca.

Kohli will get relief!

The special thing is that the loss that England will suffer due to Rashid’s absence will be much more beneficial to former Indian captain Virat Kohli because Rashid’s absence is good news for him. Actually, Kohli’s record in the white format is not good against Rashid. Rashid has dismissed Kohli thrice in 8 innings in ODI cricket, while in T20 cricket has sent him back twice in the same number of innings.
