Sharjah, Oct 30 (IANS) Australian leg-spin legend Shane Warne on Friday said one has to be patient with England tweaker Adil Rashid to get the best out of him. “Rashid’s got all the tools — he’s a wonderful bowler and he’s got a beautiful leg-break,” Warne was quoted as saying by BBC. “If you’re patient with Rashid, I think you’ll get the best out of him and see a wonderful leg-spin bowler.” In the first innings of the first Test in Abu Dhabi against Pakistan, Rashid returned figures of 0-163 but then in the second innings he came back strong to capture 5-64. The Yorkshire cricketer then took 1-84 and 1-107 as England lost the second Test in Dubai. 

“You’re going to bowl a bit of rubbish. What we’ve seen from Rashid is some glimpses of what he can do at this level, it’s about being consistent,” said Warne, who has taken 708 Test wickets. “On spinning pitches, expectations are that he’s going to come in, rip them and take five-for straight away. But when you start Test cricket, it’s hard work. You’re going to bowl a bit of rubbish, a few full tosses and half-trackers, and get whacked — it’s then about how you come back for that second spell,” Warne said. “There were some things that I worked on with Rashid which I think will be able to help him against the Pakistan players, and there were a few things I helped Yasir (Shah) with yesterday which I’m sure will help against England! “Yasir is probably the best leg-spinner in the world, but Rashid can be just as successful.”
