Adil Rashid: Michael Vaughan keeps saying stupid things
Adil Rashid was recently picked in the 13 man squad for the first Test match at Birmingham against India. He was roped in amidst a lot of controversy as the leg spinner has no played red ball cricket since a long time. This made the former England skipper Michael Vaughan somewhat unhappy.
Vaughan took to Twitter and expressed his views on the inclusion of the leggie stating it as an unusual selection as he has not played county cricket for over a year.
I personally think Adil Rashid should not be picked for the Test team … any player that cannot commit to the county championship when available shouldn’t be considered IMO … #JustSaying

Adil Rashid hit back by stating comments of Vaughan as stupid and controversial on frequent occasions.
“When I mentioned at the start of the year I will not be playing red-ball cricket, he tweeted something then. He was being controversial and saying his stupid things then too. I don’t think he has an agenda against me. I played under and with him but sometimes ex-players come out and start talking nonsense about current players. There will be people out there who are not happy. There will be haters, like the pundits who are saying it is a disgrace. That is not my fault.” said Adil Rashid.
Vaughan replied with another tweet showing concern on the team selection part as they will be playing against a strong Indian side which is placed at the number one position in Test’s.
