ADIL Rashid believes he can play a key part in Yorkshire competing on all fronts in 2020.

It is reported that the leg-spinning all-rounder is poised to sign on the dotted line and re-sign for his home county to play both white and red ball formats for the 2020 season.

The Heaton-born cricketer is still in the midst of recovering from a shoulder injury suffered during England’s successful 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup campaign, where he was selected for every game, including that mammoth final against New Zealand.

Rashid received a double whammy last week as he was firstly announced, along with fellow Bradfordian England teammate Johnny Bairstow, to have been given “The Roll of Honorary Freemen’ of the city after the pair’s endeavours in last summer’s tournament.

The World Cup winner also gained a spot on the shortlist for Sportsman of the Year in the fifth annual Bradford Sports Awards.

Isle of Man Senior TT motorcycle champion Dean Harrison and Great Britain triathlete Andrew Dovernor are the other nominees up for the prize awarded on March 12.

Rashid has played in the White Rose colours for over 10 years, making his county cricket debut in 2006, usually featuring in the shorter formats of the game.

The 31-year-old has not played a County Championship match since September 2017 and only made three Royal London One-day Cup appearances last season.

Yorkshire have already been busy in the off-season recruiting international stars Dawid Malan and Ravichandran Ashwin from Middlesex and Nottinghamshire.

Rashid hopes he can star for the Headingley-based club and thinks success is on the horizon with the new additions helping the already strong current squad.

He said: “Hopefully whenever I am fit, I will get the chance to play for Yorkshire which I am looking forward to.

“It (the shoulder injury) is getting better, I have had a few problems for about a year now.

“I am looking to the future, I have got a tour coming up in a few weeks, hopefully it will get stronger for that.

“We (Yorkshire) have signed some top players.

“Dawid Malan is a massive signing for us and we have the likes of (Ravichandran) Ashwin and (Keshav Maharaj) too, so I am looking forward to that.

“We have got international class mixed with local players, hopefully we can compete in all three competitions.”

It is set to be a busy year for Rashid with his rounded qualities set to be used across all formats of the game, both domestically and internationally.

England, who are currently battling it out in a test series over in South Africa, host West Indies, Australia and Pakistan in an action-packed 12 months.

While the introduction of The Hundred, a new 100-ball tournament featuring eight franchises from across the UK, is also on the Bradfordian’s mind with him set to star for Leeds-based Northern Superchargers, captained by Ben Stokes.

However, there is one international competition in particular for this year that Rashid has made his biggest priority - the T20 World Cup.

Firstly speaking on whether World Cup fever has calmed down, he said: “It has settled down now with it being five months ago. It was a dream come true to win the World Cup, it will stay with me forever.

“People still mention it when you go on the streets so it is still there. It won’t be forgotten, it was an enjoyable time.”

“That is the aim (the T20 World Cup in Australia, starting in October) “Whatever we have got in between with the T20 squad and the ODI’s, our focus is that if we stick to what we have been doing.”

“It looks so far that it (The Hundred) is going to be a massive success with the players involved, the format and the excitement.

“Everybody is looking forward to it, hopefully it will pull a lot of big crowds in with the international class players producing some entertaining cricket.”
