  • England leg-spinner Adil Rashid has decided not to play in first-class cricket this season and will represent Yorkshire in limited-overs formats only.
  • The White Rose are working to facilitate Rashid’s request and it’s understood a new deal is being renegotiated for the 29-year-old, who will only play in the Royal London One-Day Cup and the NatWest T20 Blast for his county.
  • Rashid is a regular in England’s one-day and Twenty20 teams and hopes the decision to focus on white-ball cricket this year will give his career a boost.
