Cricket – Upbeat Rashid eyes series success


Adil Rashid believes England are capable of overcoming South Africa in this month’s one-day international series between the two teams.

The Yorkshire leg-spinner is on a high after taking 16 wickets for Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League but is now looking forward to starring for England again.
“I think it will be tough but I definitely think we’ve got the players to win the series,” he said. “We have good batsmen and we have good bowlers and I think we have all bases covered.”
England are 11/10 with Bet365 to win the first of the five one-day internationals against the Proteas, which is set to take place in Bloemfontein on Wednesday, while Rashid is 4/1 to be England’s top bowler in the series.
