Quotes of the week

The 20-year-old Yorkshire leg-spinner made his first appearance in senior colours in England's 217-run warm-up win against a St Kitts & Nevis Invitational XI at Warner Park.

He took his first three wickets at senior level in the match and he insists he is ready for action if called up to face the West Indies.

"I think I should be ready if called upon," Rashid told The Sun.

"I've been working hard with the coaches and feel I can bring something different.

"My batting, as a genuine all-rounder, is a big plus of course and I'm an attacking leg-spinner.

"I guess I'd model my batting on Sachin Tendulkar and my bowling on Shane Warne."

Rashid has been rested for the final warm-up match against West Indies A, which gets under way on Thursday, though.

And with Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann ahead of him on the pecking order he faces stiff competition if he is to make his debut in the first Test in Jamaica.
