Former veteran cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has given a big reaction to the legendary England bowler Adil Rashid. Adil Rashid is currently playing for Punjab Kings in the IPL. He has been selected as a replacement. Sunil Gavaskar, on the other hand, expressed surprise that Adil Rashid was not bought by any franchise during the auction so far.
According to Sunil Gavaskar, Adil Rashid is a very tremendous bowler. There is a lot of variety in his bowling and he troubles the batsmen a lot. He said during a conversation on Star Sports,
Adil Rashid is a very smart bowler. We have seen him in limited overs cricket and he brings a lot of variation to his bowlers. He bowls a separate line to the left-handed batsmen and a separate line to the right-handed batsmen. He takes the ball away so that if a batsman wants to hit a big shot, the ball does not hit the bat properly and he is caught out.
Many teams can bid in the auction for Adil Rashid – Sunil Gavaskar
Punjab Kings included Adil Rashid as a replacement for Jhye Richardson who withdrew from the second half. Sunil Gavaskar further said,
Adil Rashid is a very good bowler. I am not surprised at all that he took 12 wickets in The Hundred tournament. What surprises me more is that he was not a part of any franchise in the IPL till now. The big IPL auction is about to come and Adil Rashid has a chance to prove himself.
