Adil Rashid misses white-ball series with India for Hajj pilgrimage

Published on

Adil Rashid, England spinner will not play in the white-ball series versus India because he is preparing to travel to Mecca for Hajj pilgrimage.
England will take on India in a multi-format series. The series begins with the Test match and ends July 1. It will be followed up by the limited over matches, which will take place from July 7-17.
Rashid will also miss out on the T20 Blast campaign’s final stages in Yorkshire. Yorkshire and the ECB granted Rashid leave.

“I have wanted to do this for a while, but it has been difficult to find the right timings. According to ESPNcricinfo, Rashid said that this year it felt like something that I needed to do and something that I wanted to do.
“I spoke to Yorkshire and the ECB about it. They were very understanding and encouraging. “Me and the mistress are going and I’ll stay there for a few weeks,” he said.
Adult Muslims must make the pilgrimage at the very least once in their lifetime, if they can physically and financially afford it.
It’s a huge moment. Each faith has its own thing, but this is the most important for Islam and Muslims. It’s an important moment for me and my faith. It was something I knew I had to do while I was young, healthy, and strong. Rashid said, “This is something I committed to myself that it would be done.”
The leg-spinner will travel to the Middle East on Saturday. He is expected back in mid-July to catch England’s white-ball series with South Africa.
