“There’s been a lot of talk and speculation but Adil is a very valuable cricketer for us.

Adil Rashid has agreed a new one-year deal with Yorkshire CCC.

The new contract will see the 30-year-old make himself available for all forms of the game.

Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon told the club's official website: “There’s been a lot of talk and speculation but Adil is a very valuable cricketer for us.

“Now he’s in the Test team, how much he’ll be available for us next season is unclear. But when he is available we’d be delighted to have him and for him to be part of what would hopefully be a successful summer.

“I think for now it’s good to have the one year and see how the winter goes for Adil. We’ll probably have another look at it after the World Cup and see where he is, particularly with England and how much he’s involved with them. In the short-term it’s good to know when he’s available he’ll be playing for us.”

“Speaking to Adil he’s keen to stay here and has been here all his life. He’s in no mood to change that. We’re really pleased to keep him. We all know he’s a matchwinner for us. Leg-spin bowlers, wrist-spin bowlers are vital part of the game and that’s what we want from Adil, that potential to be a matchwinner for us in all formats.”
