Adil Rashid’s notable service to cricket was recognized as he was awarded an MBE by King Charles. The leg-spinner has played 19 Tests, 125 ODIs, and 95 T20Is for England. Rashid has had a terrific career thus far as he has won both the ODI and the T20 World Cup. Rashid has picked up 183 ODI wickets, whereas he has 95 and 60 in T20Is and Tests, respectively.
“I am so grateful for the things I have and I know some people don’t have as much as me, so I try to give what I can,” said Rashid as quoted by Yorkshire Post. “I’ve set up the Adil Rashid Cricket Centre in Bradford, that’s open now and I want to see Asian cricketers coming through there, but it’s a place where people can be day to day as well. It’s for cricket and for the community.”
We all have the responsibility to do our best on and off the field: Adil Rashid
“I try (to be a positive role model). It’s been a tricky few years for cricket, ups and down, but things don’t always sail smoothly,” he added. “We all have the responsibility to do our best on and off the field. Through playing cricket we are showing other people from these parts of England that they can make it to the top.”
