A new English leg-spinner

Won't it be nice if yesterday turns out to have been an historic day in English cricket?

The BBC reports:
Yorkshire's teenage leg-spinner Adil Rashid produced a phenomenal performance on debut as Warwickshire were heavily beaten at Scarborough.

Bradford-born Rashid, 18, also billed as a fine batsman, took 6-67 as Warwickshire were all out for 239, losing by an innings and 96 runs.

I'd settle for an historic day in Yorkshire cricket. ;-)

Every time I turn on TMS England lose a wicket or bowl a wide. I leave the county, the country and Yorkshire find a match winner. Time emigrate to Australia.

Perhaps this is Shane Warne's effect coming through. I should think he inspired a fair number of people.

It can only be a good thing for English cricket.
More leg spin bowlers also mean our batsmen gain more experience against them helping our international game.

Its just a shame he's not at Lancashire ;)

This lad is going to play for England In the Near future as an all rounder. He can bat in the top order as well.
Lets hope he doesnt get over coached like most leggies do.
