Is this Rashids first Roses game? He has the wicket of Jayasuriya.

dunno but he looks the dog's wotsits. He's tended to bowl the odd short one but on the whole his control looks very good

Bowled a few absolute jaffas. I'm thinking we should really take him to Sri Lanka, even if he doesn't play a test.

He's bowling a few hittable balls - but they're not the really bad stuff that you often expect from leggies.

Some beauts - he's getting real rotation but what's impressed me most is actually his flight.

And he tosses one up to Loye who promptly holes out. First ball to Law he finds the edge and the ball flies past McGrath at slip.

And now he's got Hodge LBW!

Not a bad trio of wickets - Jaya, Loye and Hodge.

I'm a convert.

Croft stumped off a big turner. Sucker punch really but 4 for Rashid.

So this on Sky? Damn I wish I could watch.

Nice to hear he's turning it.

Gough trusting him with the last over which needs to go for less than 10 to restrict Lancs on the extra bonus point. Nice to see a bit of pressure for him.

Interesting that he ends his wicket drought during a televised game. It doesn't seem to phase him having those cameras on him. This is the first time I've actually seen him bowl. I still reckon he needs a few seasons. He needs to start playing one day cricket ASAP too. I honestly don't see the point of bringing him into International cricket unless he can be reasonable successful in all formats of the game. As of now we have a squad of players who can't hack in 2 of 3 formats.

7 runs and a wicket off the last ball as Law is stumped (and 3 of those runs were from an edge).

5 for the boy wonder.

Not going to get giddy over one performance in county cricket but he is a pleasure to watch bowl.

Now that has to be some kind of record. I can't even quite work out how it could have happened.

A bit of a genius. The wicket was stumped too wasn't it? How do you even record that in the ball by ball? Even cricinfo hasn't managed:

68.6 Rashid to Law: Wicket. 7 runs. Law comes down the track then back to his crease again several times and is stumped.

I think Ramprakash tried that again Warne once if memory serves.

He didn't get the 7 runs though.

Hmmm but would the OD stuff make his bowling negative?

Why would it? What a strange statement ... its not the first time I've heard it either

I don't understand where this mindset comes from to be honest, but it is soooo typically English.

As if bowling in the one day game will 'break' him. I mean, what is the logic behind that? I just dont get it ...

He would be a hit in the shorter form of the game. Just look how successful spinners have been in T20. And he bats. Let them 'ave it.

Besides, he's gonna have to start playing the shorter version of the game sooner or later because no matter what the toffs think the shorter version of the game is the future and the grand daddy.

I saw Rashid bowled for the time today and thought he bowled a little too short. Still, his figures were excellent and he's got plenty of time to work on his control. He may already be the second best spin bowler in the country.

I presume he would be used to contain rather than attack.

Isn't this how Warne was developed?

Really?
