Rashid is good but he hasn’t done all that well in internationals. Most of his wickets are from IPL, BBL, and against Associate teams in ODIs. He hasn’t really ever run through India or Australia or even South Africa I don’t think.

This isn’t one of your best Kriterion

He’s ran through Zimbabwe plenty of times, which is all that really matters regarding this thread

He has destroyed Bangladesh & Ireland in test matches in these conditions

He’s been almost unplayable in the BBL this season, on flat decks made for batting.

I rate Rashid don’t get me wrong. But it’s also true that he’s got to have a few performances in internationals to win his side some games or at least run through a lineup in a loss. In 9 games at the last World Cup he was merely OK from what I remember. 9 games is a decent sample size. But the IPL or BBL or Netherlands or even the West Indies can’t be a benchmark for cricketing potential.

This is how far behind we are when it comes to unearthing talent and why our pace bowlers don't generally do as great a job as we want.

This is why we talk about players for the test team, trying to determine who the pace bowlers should be is such a conundrum.

That’s great. Might be UAE since They are playing Ireland in the UAE.

Looks like Oman was the backup venue for the Ireland series but the Zimbabwe games will be in Oman.
