England white-ball specialist Adil Rashid has revealed he would be open to a return to the Test side if approached by selectors for the upcoming five-match series against India.
Leg-spinner Rashid signed a white-ball only contract with county side Yorkshire earlier this year after being ignored by England’s Test set-up for over a year.
However, after impressing over the past 12 months with England in their shorter formats, many have called for Rashid to be given another shot at red-ball cricket.
The 30-year-old has appeared in 10 Tests for England, with his last coming against India at Chennai back in December 2016.
Talking over a potential Test return, Rashid admitted he would be open to the idea if approached by chief selectors in the coming days.
I made the decision earlier this year to focus on playing white-ball cricket to see how it felt, but always knew that if I found I was missing red-ball cricket, then I would go back to it.
So, if the selectors come and show faith in me, then I would consider it, whatever role they want me to play.
Rashid dismissed India captain Virat Kohli twice in the three match ODI series and could well be in the squad for the first Test to challenge Kohli again which begins on August 1.
